Pond path improvements coming

The City of Albany Department of General Services tells us that they will make some much needed improvements to the path on the South (New Scotland) side of the pond this fall. This section of the path is very low, and has been in mild disrepair for years, with rail road ties and wooden supports falling in to the pond, and occasional flooding significant enough to make the path impassable. Getting this issue corrected has been on our high priority list, so we're thrilled that DGS is able to get to that this year.

They plan to widen and elevate this section, which should alleviate the problems with flooding. Sadly we will lose some vegetation in this area due to the construction, but it should soon grow back.

No start date has been given for the work, but they say it should happen this fall.
