NEWS BRIEFS Saratoga state park opens this weekend SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Victoria Pool at Saratoga Spa State Park is slated to open ahead of schedule this weekend. The pool will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday only, then close again next week and reopen for good on June 23, its official opening date. Good water-testing results led park officials to OK the early opening, although a petition circulated by the Save the Victoria Pool Society to open early didn’t hurt, said Park Manager Michael Greenslade. Closing next week is necessary because the park hires high school students to staff the pool and pool attendance is usually low until after school lets out for the summer, Greenslade said.
