11 Great Upstate New York City Parks
Over the years we have written many articles highlighting the various state and county (and national) parks that can be found in upstate New York. This list is a little different.
Here we take a look at 11 of our wonderful town parks. In our older cities we can find parks that were the centerpiece of such places, as Albany, Schenectady, Buffalo, Rochester and others, in their beginnings to greatness. At the end of the 19th century, urban planners went deeper into creating parks for our urban areas. These places were showcases then, and they still are today.
Take a look at some of these interesting parks. Have you ever heard of an “urban ornamental park?” A city park that only certain locals were allowed to use (and they had to have a key to enter!). Well, there are only two in the entire state and one of them is in the Capital District.
Did you know that Frederick Law Olmstead is considered the “dean of American park designers?” He was the master. He designed and built Central Park in New York. But did you know that he was also involved in the creation of several parks in upstate New York? And they are on this list!
So we hope you will explore these wonderful parks. They have rose gardens, they host festivals, they feature world-class statues and monuments, and they are the beautiful green oasis in our ever-growing urban centers.
Big cities and small towns, they are all worth the detour!
