Saratoga Square Park, the second largest park in historic Bedford-Stuyvesant, takes its name from Saratoga Avenue just to the east, which was itself named in 1835 for the Revolutionary War Battles of Saratoga, New York on September 19 and October 7, 1777.
The word Saratoga itself may be Iroquois or Mohawk in origin, perhaps meaning “springs from hillside.” Other possible meanings include “place of miraculous water in rock” and “beaver place.” Whatever its origins, Saratoga is a popular name used for parks and towns in New York State and throughout the country.
