Opening early: Victoria Pool

victoria pool large

We mentioned this in STDTW, but it's worth highlighting: The Victoria Pool at Saratoga Spa State Park is opening for the season early this weekend.

The Victoria Pool is an excellent place to lounge while having a drink. There's a sort of casual opulence about it. Also: it has a pool. With water. That you can swim in.

The schedule for this weekend, and the next, and the next: 10 am-6 pm Saturday and Sunday. It's $8 for adults, $4 for kids and seniors, and free for kids under 5. The pool will be open daily starting June 22.

I have always wanted to go swimming in that beautiful pool.
I can't do ladders.
Does anyone know if it also has stairs, and showers in the bath house?

I've only been to the Peerless Pool, which has zero-entry (love!) but a quick Google image search does show stairs at the Victoria Pool.

The Vic pool does have showers! The bath house closes right at 6, when the pool closes too.

Thank you so much abby, and innae!
One more question, i don't understand if i were to go to the pools would i also have to pay for parking, thanks?
