A Place to Learn from and Listen to
Once destined for residential development, the 90-acre Round Lake Preserve now encompasses critical environmental assets including both wetlands and woodlands, and offers ample opportunities for a variety of recreational activities.
Created from land purchased by the Town of Malta, New York, and Saratoga PLAN, the Round Lake Preserve park protects scenic vistas, historical resources, adjacent farmland, and public access to Round Lake.
The new preserve improves community access to a significant amount of scenic wetlands, woodland, meadows and fields and is an ideal place for nature walks, birding, wildlife observation, canoeing/kayaking, fishing, cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
The LA Group, through detailed site analysis, public outreach, concept plans, historic interpretive theming, and a master plan, helped the park introduce multiple passive recreational and cultural opportunities, including, but not limited to:
- Improved site access
- Formalized parking area
- Accessible trails
- Fishing access and viewing areas
- Educational and interpretational opportunities
- Entry and site identification signage
- Car-top boat launch
