It’s summertime, and that means most of the kids are on summer vacation from school. Hopefully mom or dad can get them off of the computer and  out of the house to get some exercise and play.

Maybe it would be a good time to visit a playground, especially for the younger children. In Colonie, there are quite a few parks that have been built, called ‘Pocket Parks’. I think there’s one that’s convenient, and a safe distance to almost every neighborhood.

Here’s a list of five playgrounds that I put together.


Central Park - Schenectady

Indian Meadows Town Park - Glenville

Butler Park - Averill Park

Good times for the kids and everyone in the Albany area for the summer. Where is there a playground near you?
