Skate Park in Washington Park
The Skate park in Washington Park project includes the construction of a new 20,000 square foot skate park on four underutilized tennis courts located in the southwest quadrant of Washington Park. The skate park will make use of the existing tennis court surface and take advantage of the terraced construction of the courts. The surface will be complemented with a diverse range of obstacles, features, and reflect input from community residents and Albany skaters collected during the design process. The work will generally concentrate on the three lower courts allowing for a potential future phase to develop the upper court, should funding become available.
The City expects to solicit construction costs from contractors in August and begin construction in early September. The work will be completed sometime in November. Any questions or comments should be directed to Jonathan Jones, Commissioner - City of Albany Department of Recreation (518) 434-5699.
