“River Rhythms and Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2013

Nice park within walking distance of historic Albany, shops and restaurants. Great for family picnics (tables and a gazebo), weddings, receptions, etc., during the summer. It's right on a river-front walking/biking trail. During the summer season of River Rhythms you can hear free (donation) concerts on Thursday evenings and "Mondays in Monteith" gives another musical perspective. The gazebo can be reserved through the Albany Parks and Recreation department.

“Monteith Park Albany”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2012

Beautiful city park by the Willamette River in Albany. Can depart from here on a concrete sidewalk for a long walk along the river. There are some piers you can walk out on to get closer and look at the river. The park itself is beautifully manicured and kept by the city. The Albany Senior Center is on the eastern edge. LIngering transients do mar the experience some, but just ignore them and enjoy the clean smelling air and the beautiful vistas.

“Wonderful Family Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2012

The Albany Parks and Rec do a great job of maintaining this park and providing many family-style activities - especially in the summer. July and August offer the "Mondays at Monteith" concerts, featuring local musical talent such as the Willamette Valley Concert Band and the Albany Swing Band, and "River Rhythms", which brings many talented acts from across the nation to Albany for the pleasure of local fans. It's a great location, even if all you want is pretty spot for a picnic or walking path on which to jog or walk your dog.
