Choose Your Favorite Concept for the Next Lincoln Park Pool!

Over the past two years, the City of Albany Department of Recreation and Department of Planning & Development have led a community input process to solicit feedback from residents on what they would like to see in the next Lincoln Park Pool.

Using the input collected during several different visioning sessions, community meetings, and survey opportunities, the City of Albany is proud to present the final two options for the next Lincoln Park Pool.
