About Waterfront Park

This beautiful public space opened in July of 2015 after a number of years were spent brainstorming how to develop the four-acre parcel of land off Crescent Avenue. Admission is free for visitors.

The lower level of Waterfront Park has been transformed into a sandy beach, perfect for enjoying a sunny day (swimming not permitted). You'll also find a launch area for kayaks, benches, picnic tables, trash cans, and a porta potty (seasonal). 

The park’s newest addition is a fantastic playground, opened this spring, the 4,400-square-foot playground features slides, challenging bridges, climbing elements, and a special binocular viewing area with breathtaking views of Saratoga Lake.

Above the beach on the middle tier, there is a small amphitheater that allows for community gathering and events overlooking Saratoga Lake.

On the top tier, there is a parking lot and staircase that leads to both the amphitheater and beach area. A road winds around the park from the top tier to the bottom so you can unload your kayak at the launch.

Directions to Waterfront Park

If you are coming from downtown Saratoga, head east on Union Avenue and take a right onto Crescent Avenue. Head down the road, and then take a left onto Garside Lane to reach the park.
