Public pool at Saratoga State Park opens early this weekend

SARATOGA SPRINGS -- All this warm weather has prompted the Saratoga State Park to open its Victoria Pool early for the season!

Governor Cuomo made the announcement today that the public pool will open Saturday, June 1, three weeks earlier than scheduled.

"I'm pleased we are able to provide one more option to stay cool this weekend by opening the Victoria Pool ahead of schedule. Beating the summer heat is one of the many great services our parks provide," Governor Cuomo said.

"Thanks to our dedicated park staff, we were able to quickly mobilize to open the beautiful Victoria Pool ahead of schedule. I cannot think of a better place to be on a hot summer day than one of our great state parks," said Rose Harvey, Commissioner, Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

The pool was originally scheduled to open June 22, but due to the predicted warm weather, the pool will be open and ready for use this Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm, and again on June 8 and 9 and June 15 and 16.

The pool will open from 10 am to 6 pm daily beginning Saturday, June 22.
