My Background

About the Project

The Patroon Creek Greenway Feasibility Study is being conducted in partnership with the City of Albany and the Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) to identify a feasible multi-use trail connection (approximately 9 miles in length) from Albany’s Hudson River waterfront west to Six Mile Waterworks Park and Rensselaer Lake. Building on the recommendations contained in the 2004 Patroon Greenway Linkage Study this study will evaluate several potential trail corridors, trail facility designs, and local connections.

Project Goals



safe linkages between neighborhoods and the proposed Patroon Greenway.


resident with economic,

recreation and social opportunities.


public health


the city's attractiveness

and quality of life.



The Patroon Creek Greenway is a major component of the Capital District Trails Plan and once built, will provide a much needed east-west connection for bicyclists and pedestrians. This feasibility study is expected to take one year to complete and will result in a community-driven plan that includes a feasible alignment for the Greenway, trail design recommendations, and key connections to neighborhoods and local destinations. The study will also provide the city with a detailed plan for funding and constructing the proposed Greenway.
