Only stopped of in Albany for one night stay. Park was right outside our accommodation (Morgan State House). I was suffering with jet lag, and an hour in the park, with the squirrels and birds was a wonderful 5am experience. Must be equally nice during the day.

Love all the events that the park puts on. Always look forward to Tulip Festival, Christmas lights in the Park, and the Summer Plays. Lake house is very historical and attractive. Wouldn't want to walk there at night. Hard to find parking during events.

A lovely park to walk around on a beautiful day. Flowers, the pond, the architecture are all worth the visit. Nice play area for children, great for biking and the events are always fun.

I come here every year for the Breast Cancer Walk in October. This park is so beautiful, very green, and very well maintained. Since Im from NYC, its honestly the closest I feel to Central Park. I love it- I love to just read there, lay out, think. Its huge and very scenic. Love this park!!!

Washington Park in Albany is over 80 acres, which is so surprising for a city of Albany's size. The park has numerous walking paths, both just gravel and paved, which lead to flower beds and statues. The Moses statue is particularly appealing. Dogs are allowed in the park on leashes. A nice outing on a sunny day.

Came for a photo shoot. Expected more. It was calm and peaceful but I expected more of a garden. Great for family viewing and fun.

This park is okay but nothing special. We walked for a bit. The kids played at the children's park. The park had very little flowers. There was construction everywhere. It did not seem very well kept to me!

Lovely park, clean and well-maintained. The trees were beautiful as were the gardens. Although we walked a small section, I could see myself relaxing with a book.

My wife and I took a gorgeous walk through this park after dinner a few blocks away. Beautiful grassy areas, well maintained with lots of flowers. You could probably spend all day in this park if you wanted.

Washington Park is so quiet and relaxing. A beautiful oasis in the middle of a busy city. A little like a mini Central Park. Always clean with beautiful flower beds and trees.
