Playground Initiative

North Side Playground

Playground Initiative Quick Links

In 2015 the City of Saratoga Spring Recreation Commission launched the Playground Initiative with the vision to renovate the City’s outdated playgrounds. The mission of the Playground Initiative is to ensure that all residents in Saratoga Springs have access to a safe and engaging play space in their own neighborhood. By building strong partnerships with the community, elected officials and the Recreation Department, the Playground Initiative ensures that playgrounds are valued, protected and improved citywide.

Work was completed on the North Side playground in April of 2017. Click on the above link to view the final design for this playground. 

The next playground to be renovated is located at the West Side Rec. A meeting will be held at 6:00pm on Tuesday, June 27th at the Saratoga Springs Recreation Center. The general public is invited to attend and give their input on the design of the new playground.

Volunteers and Community support will be needed to help bring these playgrounds to life. Consider lending a hand. Tasks will include cleanup of each site, site prep, installation of some borders, raking and laying mulch. No special skills are required. If you can do yard work, you can help!
