Park Improvements

Changes coming to the Path

As a result of the Albany County Soil & Water District grant that BPC facilitated, DGS will be reconfiguring the steep section of the path near the foot of Lenox on the the New Scotland (south) side of the pond. We don't know yet when work will begin, but if you see any activity there, that's what's going on. The new configuration will take a much shallower approach up the hill which will reduce the amount of erosion and make the path easier to walk for all.

Save the date for Sunday 5/16

The next pond cleanup day will be Sunday 5/16 1 to 3 pm, weather permitting. Please put it on your calendar now, and we'll let you know more as the date approaches. It should be a great day to get out and work together on our pond. If you are willing to post a few flyers around the neighborhood, please let me know at albanybpc@gmail.com, we can use the help!

Changes coming to the pond path for erosion control

The Sidewalk is Coming

Back in March, we learned that the City had requested State funds to enhance the sidewalks on Euclid Ave on the South (New Scotland) side of the pond. I've now learned that the State has funded that request! The City has completed a design for the project and put it out to bid. Bill LeCuyer in the City's engineering office provided the design so I could send it out to the Buckingham Pond Conservancy.

Good News from the City

Joe Igoe (Ward 14 Councilman) has provided the following good news about City efforts on behalf of the pond. Many thanks to Joe, and the City for these efforts.
