The main pool is a football field-sized swimming pool that was built in 1962. This huge rubber-bottomed pool has a zero-depth entrance, which simply means that the little ones can sit or stand in the shallow water at the very end of the pool and splash around. Lifeguards are on duty.
The smaller kiddie/baby pool at Peerless Pool Complex is perfect for small children with wading depth water of 1 foot deep. Within this pool is a large, mushroom-shaped fountain for the kids to run beneath. There is a separate lifeguard on duty dedicated to the kiddie pool. Small pool toys are allowed.
For the more adventurous, there is a 19’ winding double waterslide pool for older kids and adults to enjoy. We use the term 'pool' loosely here as this area is not for swimming. The water is 3 feet deep where the slides dump you out, so children need to be big enough to ride. Lifeguards are stationed at the top and bottom of the Peerless Pool water slides.
Peerless Pool is located within Saratoga Spa State Park. Use the northern entrance to the park, and follow the signs to Peerless Pool.
Showers, lockers, restrooms and food concessions are available around the pools.
