BALLSTON SPA — Wiswall Park is in need of revitalization, but the Village of Ballston Spa needs the community’s help to move the project forward. 

The Village of Ballston Spa Park and Tree Board, along with a group of citizens, have been working on a renovation plan for Wiswall Park. On Nov. 9, 2020, they proposed their concept design at a Village Board meeting. However, they need public feedback before it can be finalized. 

The reasons for revitalization listed by the Village of Ballston Spa Park and Tree Board are the invasive plants, dilapidated gazebo and park benches, the awkward location of the spring, uneven paths, and more. Their concept design is based on the park being a quiet retreat for strolling, sitting, visiting, and having lunch. The Board adds that they also want opinions on moving community events that previously took place at Wiswall Park to other locations in the Village. 

Liz Kormos, Trustee and Liaison to the Park and Tree Board, stated that the concerts will be moved to Iron Springs Park and the farmers’ market moved to Saratoga County History Center at Brookside Museum this summer to allow for the work to be done. Movies are still planned for Wiswall Park with Iron Springs Park as the alternate location. 

The Village of Ballston Spa Park and Tree Board asks that you freely share your thoughts regarding the concept design of the park and its future uses by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by April 12.
