Potsdam is situated along the beautiful Raquette River. Ives Park is located right in the center of the village and offers a wonderful place to sit and relax, launch a canoe or kayak, or watch children play at the natural play space. The park with its gazebo is often the location for festivals and musical events. A lovely place to stroll any time of the year.
Sandstoner Park offers an ice rink in the winter and a supervised beach for swimming in the summer. Youngsters can participate in hockey, figure skating, lacrosse, football, baseball, basketball, soccer, golf, swimming, and martial arts. Our local universities are also home to some of the best youth sporting camps in the country.
Examples of sandstone architecture dating from the 1800s are scattered throughout the town. Visitors can enjoy dining at over thirty local eateries. Potsdam offers a wide variety of retail stores and businesses listed on the Chamber website.
