Built in 1935, the pool complex was joyously received by the public and happy visitors reclined in lawn chairs and on towels surrounded by blue tile and gaily colored umbrellas. NY Governor Franklin D. Roosevelt became a strong proponent of the healthful environment of Saratoga Springs. He actively supported the building of Victoria Pool as part of an overall hydrotherapy program in combination with ‘taking the cure’ at the baths and mineral springs of Saratoga.

The architecture of Victoria Pool and surrounding buildings is simply amazing. Built in a traditional style of architecture with classic brick structures graced by arched colonnades, the pool also features a spectacular limestone deck and lion water spouts. Magnificent! 

The Victoria Pool reopened in 2005 after going through an extensive renovation, returning it to its pristine condition. The pool's original boilers are too costly to run, so the pool is unheated until an alternative energy source is found. For now, you can enjoy the comfort of its cool water amid the historic architecture for which it is so renowned. 

Located in Saratoga Spa State Park, Victoria pool has a maximum capacity of 350 people. A few of the locker rooms have been converted to a golf swing analysis and training facility. Showers, lockers and rest rooms are available.

The peerless pool is closed for remodeling. And this pool is family oriental .

What happened to the Victoria Pool being adult only? The family and child orientated pool is called the Peerless pool. Not cool.....

The Victoria Pool is amazing!! It has an old world "Art Deco" vibe to it which makes you feel like you're on vacation every time you are there, it boasts a gorgeous state of the art pool with an outdoor restaurant & bar that caters to everyone that comes! It truly is the summer place to be in Saratoga!

The Victoria Pool is The Most Beautiful Pool... EVER!!! Every time I'm in Saratoga, I make it a point to spend some time at This Pool. You can even have a cocktail poolside. You will also feel as if you have stepped back in time to the 1930's. I always feel as if I should see Eleanor and FDR poolside. Simply a Beautiful and Beyond Relaxing Experience. Don't come to the track, without spending a few hours with Victoria!

I love this pool; it is kept clean, minimal children, great food options available and the outside bar is always nice. : )
