Please take our park visitors survey https://surveymonkey.com/r/BPCSurvey2016.
The results of this survey will help us focus our efforts to protect, preserve, and enhance Buckingham Pond and its surrounding green space.

Playground Feedback Sunday 9/25 3 to 5 PM

The City of Albany has asked Buckingham Pond Conservancy to help gather community comments on proposed improvements to the Buckingham Pond Park playground.  
 
Please join us at the public information meeting on Sunday, September 25th at 3:00 to 5:00 pm at the Bethany Reformed Church at 760 New Scotland Ave, Albany. Elks Lodge 25 South Allen Street, corner of Yates.  PLEASE NOTE NEW LOCATION
 
The City has provided this pdf of the proposed improvements.   A representative from the playground equipment company will be on-hand to answer any questions.
 
We invite all ages to attend this meeting -- young and old and in between!  We also welcome comments to info@buckinghampondconservancy.org
 
Another important way for you to communicate your thoughts about Buckingham Pond Park is to take our short visitors survey here: https://surveymonkey.com/r/BPCSurvey2016.  The survey is about the entire park, not only the playground, so we hope you will fill it out whether or not you are able to join us on the 25th.
 
Thank you, and we hope to see you on September 25th!

Ice Cream Social Sunday 9/11 1 to 3

Ice Cream Social Sunday 9/11 1 - 3 PM

Sunday September 11 from 1 - 3 will be our Sixth Annual Ice Cream Social.

There will be *FREE* ice cream courtesy of the Stewart's Shop on New Scotland Avenue and guided nature walks of the pond.

And of course, time to enjoy this special place with your friends and neighbors.

Food, friends, and fun - who could ask for anything more?

DGS working at the pond

Shown here is a photo taken earlier today 9/9/2016 of a DGS truck digging out the catch basin in the parking lot and it appears they’ve begun the work to fix the washed out part of the path. Thank You DGS for helping us improve the park!

Invasive Species Walk

Friday, May 13, we will be meeting Laurel Gailor from PRISM (Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management) at the pond parking lot at 4:00. She is going to walk the pond to help identify invasive species and hopefully let us know what we should be doing about it.

If you would like and are able to join us, please feel free to come.
