In the past I described several walks around Albany that start at the USS Slater. This is direct walk to Washington Park. From the USS Slater, walk up Madison Ave., and loop around Washington Park. Return by State Street and the Hudson River Way Pedestrian Bridge.
Once a year (since 1949) Albany hosts a Tulip Festival. I took the walk during this year's event (Sunday Morning, May 8th). This year the city planted over 200,000 bulbs (~ 140 varieties).
