Congress Park, Saratoga Springs, New York

In 1900, Richard Canfield, owner of the Canfield Casino, hosted a visit from his friend Charles W Eliot, president of Harvard University. As Eliot's hobby was garden landscaping, he suggested that the park be improved by the addition of gardens and sculptures
On Eliot's recommendation, Canfield hired Clarence Luce, a well known landscape architect from Boston and New York, to design the gardens in 1902-03. The gardens were built by Frank DeFrank, Canfield's head gardener, following Luce's plans and were opened to the public in 1905.
