Tulip festival is a very nice event to attend and take in. The music, food, flowers, and people are fun to experience.

This is one of the many beautiful parks n Albany and by far the most accessible, it is truly beautiful, full of rolling hills and beautiful tulips, we were early this year but it was a bright sun shiny day.

Big urban park. Wide variety of uses i.e. Walking, picnics, music concerts, Park Playhouse in the summer, annual Tulip Festival, annual Holiday Lightsin the Park, etc. Open to all. Limited parking. Next to the hip artist area known as Lark Street.

Numerous tennis courts, a lake (with a bridge), a playhouse, an impressive statue/fountain, tulips in season, a lot of space to relax or exercise in.

Christmas lights are up now and the park is beautiful. Meander, Stroll. Walk while the kids scamper and frolic. Most seasons we love to take bike rides, to enjoy the park not set speed records. Safe in the daylight. Ample cafes nearby.

Not the kind of place you would want to walk your family through at Dusk people staring at you making faces makes you think that they want to rob you or something
