  • This rose garden is fantastic in spring summer and fall the folks that maintain it do a great job. They make it so beautiful in an already fantastic setting of Central park.  more »
  • The best park in Capital District. We are lucky to live in the neighborhood. Every morning go for a jog there. Plus the famous rose garden! Enough to say it is listed in world catalogs.
  • Great place to bring kids. Has a great pool in the summer and swan peddling rides to go around the pond. I don't recommend fishing in this pond although plenty of people do it. So happy Schenectady Parks and Recreation have been very diligent in keeping the park clean and safe.
