Saratoga Spa State Park Master Plan Available for Final Review

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has completed a Master Plan and Final Environmental Impact Statement for Saratoga Spa State Park.

The plan outlines OPRHP's vision for potential capital improvements, operational enhancements and natural and cultural resource stewardship within Saratoga Spa State Park in Saratoga County for the next ten to fifteen years. Factors such as the availability of funding, the need to invest in rehabilitation of existing park infrastructure, and other pressing needs in the entire state parks system will influence the feasibility and timing of the improvements.

Copies are available for review at the park office, the offices of the agency contacts and at the Saratoga Springs Public Library, 49 Henry Street, Saratoga Springs, NY 12886. The online version of the Final Plan/FEIS is available at:  

Comments on the Final Plan/FEIS will be accepted during a final consideration period until January 8, 2010, at which time the plan will be submitted to the State Parks commissioner for final approval. Comments many be emailed to or sent to the agency contacts:
