Cross Walk

30 Jun

I love The Crossings of Colonie park!

I go there almost every single day to walk Lola, run, ride my bike, or skate.  Here we are heading out for an early morning stroll.

There are 6.5 miles of trails and the pavement is really smooth, so skating is a breeze. Plus there are only a couple crossings where you need to be concerned about car traffic.  Love that!

There is a big pond with lots of ducks and geese and fish. Oh I’ve even seen some turtles bathing themselves in the rocks around the pond, too. The pavilions, including this one, are available for rental.

This kid-size labyrinth is so cool. I crouch down and go through it myself (but, then again, I am a shorty to begin with!).

Isn’t she lovely?

On Saturday mornings in the summer, there’s also a great little farmer’s market. I was quite impressed with the vendors and their wonderful looking veggies, fruit, and flowers.

If you go:  use this detailed PDF map of the park including distances of the trails and parking areas. And if you see us, stop and say “howdy, neighbor!”

    I also love the Crossings! It’s a great place to go for some exercise. I really enjoy going there and walking around.

    Lola is such a sweet looking pug! Love her little vest/harness. I too love The Crossings, but you would find me chasing/eyeballing my two littles in the playground area. We usually stay away from the maze, because although it looks like fun I always imagine creepers hiding in the bushes.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog! I used to work at Fleet Feet– right near the crossings. I know a lot of people who run there. I’ll def. check it out!
