  • A location that represents a little of the history of the United States in addition to the beauty of flowers, especially at the time of the flowering of poppies (Aug/Sep).

  • Amazing place to spend an afternoon on a nice day. Kickball, bocce, baseball - all have been played. Dogs are welcome. Free plays in the summer, good hills for sledding in the winter. Seemingly no prohibition on alcohol as long as you aren't an idiot. I've spent thousands of hours here since moving to Albany.
  • I love this park. Walkable. Could use more walking paths near roadways. Clean. Small playground for kids. Outdoor stage next to the pond. Beautiful bridge over the pond.
  • Washington park is a beautiful park. They have shows, great places to walk, ride your bike or just relax on the grass. They have a playground for children and they often hold many city events in the park. Check it out, its defiantly worth a stroll.
  • A nice park with ample space for a variety of activities. There is a playground for kids as well as nice walking paths that include circling the pond in the center of the park. There is an entertainment building that hosts a variety of events such as concerts and plays. One star is removed because there were a couple of gentlemen that were bothering people for a cigarette and getting mad when people would say no. Fortunately, the Albany police were in eye sight of the men and handled the situation.
  • Nice little park. Descent walking paths. Great time to go is during Tulip Festival during Mother's Day weekend. Playhouse has good events.
