About the Washington Park Conservancy

The Washington Park Conservancy, an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1985 to preserve, protect and promote historic Washington Park in Albany, New York. The Conservancy works with the City of Albany to help guide the​periodic restoration and maintenance of the Park, and has undertaken a variety of projects over the last thirty years.

As a living work of art, Washington Park needs thoughtful stewardship in the context of its history and the needs of today’s city.

We invite you to become a member of the Conservancy and join our efforts to restore, preserve, and maintain Washington Park for leisure, recreation, and the appreciation of nature for all of Albany’s residents and visitors, today and for generations to come.
