If you plan on lazing by the pool this summer on those hot muggy days, you’d better make sure it’s sparkling clean and pristine. Dirty swimming pools are not only yucky to look at, they can also be a health hazard. Part of the process of doing this is performing pool opening procedures correctly (hopefully you did the pool closing ones correctly before the onset of winter). Then you need to conduct regular pool cleaning exercises, test the water and keep up with the pool chemicals … And so on. Do all this right and you’ll be rewarded with a healthy, clean swimming pool to enjoy over summer.
However, in today’s busy world, time to perform ongoing and regular pool maintenance may not be a luxury you have, in which case you can call upon the expert services of Jonathon and his team from Saratoga Pool and Tub Co. They are consummate professionals when it comes to all things swimming pool, hot tub, sauna and spa related and provide a range of pool supplies as well as maintenance services plus pump and robotic vacuum cleaner maintenance, repairs and supplies.
What’s In Wilton Apart From Great Pool Supplies?
Wilton is north and slightly east of Saratoga Springs on Highway 9, also known as Saratoga Rd. Some of the more notable landmarks in Wilton include Ballard Corners, Barnes Corners, Dimmick Corners, Gurn Spring, Kings Station, Loughberry Lake, Mt. McGregor Correctional Facility, the Grant Cottage and Travers Corners. The Grant Cottage State Historic Site is where Ulysses S. Grant died in 1885.
Wilton Wildlife Preserve and Park is around 3000 acres of protected conservation land made up of farms and forest land donated by local governments, private donors and the Nature Conservancy. In winter it’s a great place for snow boarding and skiing and in summer the trails are used for hiking. If you want a birds eye view of the park pay a visit to Cornell Hill Fire Tower. There are several hotels near by for tourists or out of towners – Birches Motel, Crest Inn Suites & Cottages and Comfort Inn & Suites. Also close by is Camp Saratoga which incorporates Delegan Pond, a favourite spot for hiking and fishing.
Back down the road in Saratoga Springs the list of things to do in the area broadens. Saratoga is a well-known part of the horseracing world as the home of Saratoga Race Course, one of two major tracks maintained by the NY Racing Association. It ranks amongst the top 10 tracks in the country. It’s not the only horse related activity on offer in Saratoga however as observant eyes will soon discover. Scattered around town are several dozen ‘painted ponies’ and driving around finding them all is a favourite pastime for visitors to Saratoga Springs, especially those with an interest in horses. The National Museum of Racing & Hall of Fame, dedicated to the thoroughbred racehorse, is also based at Saratoga Springs and features equine art collections, trophies, and memorabilia related to this domain.
You can also visit the Saratoga Performing Arts Center or take the youngsters to the Children’s Museum then maybe play a few rounds at the Saratoga Mini Golf centre. Wilton residents can take advantage of Gavin Park, a recreation complex that offers a great range of activities, sports and games plus coaching.
