Be an angel and cheer on the Siena Saints basketball team at the Times Union Center, or witness fire on ice at an Albany Devils hockey game. Albany is also home for the Albany Legends basketball and the NY Giants summer training camp (with practices and events planned throughout their stay). Take yourself to the ballgame by traveling over the Hudson River to watch the Tri-City ValleyCats baseball, or head out to left field (west of Albany) and visit the Cooperstown National Baseball Hall of Fame. You'd be out of your scull to miss the Albany Rowing Center make waves on the Hudson.
Along with our great sports facilities and events, we offer four seasons of recreational activities and beautiful parks and gardens. Take the family out to the ball game or get up out of the stands and go boating on the Hudson, swimming or waterskiing at any of the area lakes, play a round of golf on warm weather days, or take the short 40 minute drive to Saratoga Race Track during the thoroughbred racing season, (July-September). Take in the scenic Erie Canalway (map), hop on your bike or take a jog along the Hudson River path. Don't let the cold weather stop you in the winter, get out there and enjoy ice-skating, snow-shoeing, or skiing at Albany's nearby skiing resorts. Albany holds the ticket for all kinds of sports and recreation action!
