Welcome to Our Village
First settled in 1771, the Village of Ballston Spa incorporated in 1807. Today, it is is a charming historic village with a friendly, hometown atmosphere, destination shopping and eateries, and a visible sense of community.
For those of us who live in the Village, downtown is less than a five minute walk - which brings us to the downtown business district. Stroll along and visit your favorite cafe or restaurant, the library or post office, or sit in the Wiswall Park or along Front street and people-watch. This is a different way of doing things from getting into your car and heading out to the mall. If you're looking for family activities, take the kids to the Village municipal pool or to Kelley Park on Ralph Street to enjoy the expansive and popular playground. Check out our online calendar for seasonal events that are free and open to the public. We look forward to greeting you soon!
Take our Survey!
As you may have seen... the water meter cards sent out at the end of November/early December has a blurb to take a survey! The Village of Ballston Spa has begun the NextWave Communities Program in collaboration with the Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership (SCPP), the county’s economic development leader.
The NextWave Communities Program is an initiative to provide individual towns, cities, and villages a specific and bespoke economic development plan. Information gathered in this survey will help the SCPP create a strategic plan to move forward with economic/community development in Ballston Spa.
Any data collected will be aggregated and your individual responses will remain confidential.
Please click on the link below to be taken to the online survey, or go to Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership or the Village office for a hard copy.
All surveys are due by Friday, January 31, 2019.
