Saratoga’s Forgotten Amusement Park, Do You Recall Kaydeross Park?
Do you remember Kaydeross Park on Saratoga Lake? From the amusement rides to the Olympic-size pool to the legendary carousel and miniature golf, Kaydeross Park was a fun family destination for nearly 100 years!
Kaydeross Park, Exit 14 off the Northway, closed 36 years ago but, thanks to the pictures and video below, we can go back to 1985 for a moment and relive what a day was like spent swimming, riding the tilt-a-whirl and having fun in the sun. Maybe you will see yourself in one of the pictures.
The Capital Region is no stranger to amusement parks and family attractions and we have been fortunate to have some of the best in the country right here. Storytown U.S.A., Gaslight Village, Frontier Town, Catskill Game Farm and Kaydeross Park created fond and lasting memories.
Opening in 1900, Kaydeross Park covered 50 acres of fun on Saratoga Lake. One of the star attractions was the merry-go-round which entertained families from 1940 until the park closed in 1987. Today, according to Saratoga.com, the carousel's home is Congress Park in Saratoga.
