Upcoming Events

As the community recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic, the Washington Park Conservancy is planning a carefully selected schedule of activities for the Park’s 2022 season.  We will be working to develop and promote Park events with neighborhood and community partners.  Because programming decisions may need to be made or changed  on short notice, please check our Events Calendar regularly for the latest event information. You can also keep in touch with Conservancy activities through our E-newsletter, and our Facebook page.

Albany residents and visitors are lucky to have beautiful Washington Park in the heart of our city and we encourage everyone to enjoy all it offers. When you visit the Park, please follow guidelines issued for safe use and enjoyment of the park for all.
