Parks & Recreation
- Updated on Tuesday, March 26, 2013 March 26, 2013
Albany has a strong park system with a neighborhood or community park in nearly every neighborhood zone, providing diverse recreation experiences with facilities such as playgrounds, picnic shelters, sports fields, and open grass areas. Trail corridors and natural areas add opportunities for walking, biking, and watching wildlife, while preserving significant natural resources. At the same time, city-wide parks, such as Monteith Riverpark and Timber Linn Park, offer signficant special events that draw people together and foster a sense of community. Riverfront parks and urban spaces further enhance the system, providing river access and green space in more densely developed areas of the city.
