Vale Park

Owner: City of Schenectady

Vale Park: Covering over 35 acres of downtown Schenectady, this urban oasis of a park dates over 160 years to when it was used as a cemetary in the 19th century, sold to the city in 1973 to become the park it is now. The gardens here feature a combination of native species and plants escaped from nearby gardens, ranging from Horsetails to Skunk-Cabbage, with a pair of ponds right in the middle of the whole park. Playgrounds and pavilions mark the entrance.
