Prescott Park is the ultimate four-season fun park! When it's warm, there are are plenty of picnic tables and an open lawn for activities. In winter, it becomes the site of the famous Winter Carnival and Ice Palace.

About the park

Prescott Park was established in 1925 through the efforts of Mary R. Prescott, a founding member of the Village Improvement Society. Since then, it's seen many changes. It used to be home to the Saranac Lake village beach, which has now moved to the quiet Lake Colby. Today, Prescott Park remains open to the public, but it's main uses include picnicking, dog walking, and canoe / kayak launching.

Each February, the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival takes place at Prescott Park. The main feature, the Ice Palace, resides here and many of the activities take place on site.
