Downtown’s parks are a favorite destination for both residents and visitors alike. The Albany Riverfront Park at the Corning Preserve is a waterfront destination for recreation and a variety of entertainment. With easy access provided by the Hudson River Way Pedestrian Bridge, the park bolsters an amphitheatre with performance space, a new bulkhead, floating boat docks, and a six mile bicycle path for recreation. This park is home to numerous events each year and is a popular attraction for those looking to take a walk or bike ride on the river.

In addition to the Riverfront, downtown also has a number of true urban pocket parks. These offer settings where you can enjoy lunch, read a book, attend special events, or just relax on the weekend.

Downtown’s 50 square blocks is home to three fitness centers offering cardio, weightlifting, personal training, and class exercise opportunities.
