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.

Nice place to run, relax, and sit by the water and watch the birds. Used to skate on the pond during the coldest months, but dont know if they let you do that today.

The park has expansive lawns and places to walk or play. There's plenty of room for picnic blankets - close enough to parking areas so bringing coolers is no problem.

A fantastic respite from the urban surroundings! It is spacious, clean, and well maintained. There is a lovely pond that provides a sense of tranquility. This is simply a lovely park.

Washington park is always above spot to take some work and sit by the pond with friends. The tulips are always great as well as lights in the park. Good for walks, jogging, yoga, hanging out, walking the Dog...anything really!
