Get Info About the Victoria Pool and Peerless Pool Complex

The Victoria Pool and Peerless Pool Complex are two fabulous swimming pool facilities at Saratoga Spa State Park. The Victoria Pool was built in the early 1930s as part of the health trend that was sweeping the country. The Peerless Pool Bathhouse Complex was built later in the 1960s.

Both pools opened for the 2020 season on July 3, and there are a number of new social distancing guidelines to protect public health. Learn about these guidelines and the 2020 hours of operation below.
