Welcome to the Town of North Elba, wherein lies the Olympic Village of Lake Placid in the heart of the great Adirondack Park. This website serves as a community resource to guide and assist you.  "Expressions of Our Community" is an image gallery highlighting the work of local photographers and illustrating the natural beauty of this entrancing region. We hope that you will find the information both useful and interesting. 

While we strive to preserve our Olympic heritage, having hosted the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games, Lake Placid remains committed to offering a quality lifestyle and enjoyable family experience. As residents of this renowned mountain community know, this is truly a beautiful, historical and magical place to live.

The diversity and heritage of this small town brings thousands of visitors each year to explore, relax and enjoy this very special place. Whether you relish a family thrill ride down the Toboggan Chute, behold a world class sporting event, or share a round of golf with friends on our Craig Wood Golf Course, Lake Placid offers an everlasting and memorable experience.

The Lake Placid/North Elba region: a quiet getaway, a family vacation or an extraordinary adventure for a weekend or a lifetime. . . I look forward to seeing you around town.
