For years, the Roosevelt II Bathhouse in Saratoga Spa State Park has been left vacant and in need of major renovations – but no longer! As part of Gov. Cuomo’s NY Parks 2020 initiative to rejuvenate the state’s park system, the bathhouse will receive a $2.2 million revitalization that will transform the facility into a lifelong learning, well-being, and leadership center.
Renovations at Saratoga Spa State Park
This exciting project will convert the 1930’s Georgian Revival-style bathhouse into a multi-purpose facility for Coesa (a holistic wellness community) and other future tenants. Once complete, the 18,000-foot facility will feature a front lobby, public restrooms, updated utilities, and the tenant space for Coesa.
Visitors to Coesa will have the opportunity to participate in classes and programs that are designed to inspire and support people who desire a healthier self and world. Some examples of their programs include leadership, mindfulness, workplace culture, and therapeutic yoga teacher training.
In addition to this $2.2 million project, NY State will also start a $345,000 project to rehabilitate the roofs, masonry, and plaster ceilings of the Hall of Springs and the arcades that are part of the Administration Buildings.
According to a press release from the Office of Gov. Cuomo, the governor has stated, “For decades, Saratoga Spa State Park has drawn families for recreation and restoration,” and this new development will “allow this Capital Region destination to meet the modern needs of its visitors.”
The renovations at Saratoga Spa State Park are expected to be finished by the end of this year.
