About the 2022 Stoop Stroll in Albany, NY
Center Square Association, Historic Albany Foundation and the Hudson/Park Neighborhood Association have joined together since 1975 to present one of the most enduring events of the summer – a unique glimpse into our City’s historic urban neighborhoods and gardens, a highly anticipated annual event for history, garden and architecture lovers alike.
What was once a tour of private homes and gardens, because of the pandemic, in 2021 turned into a new event: the Stupendous Stoop Stroll! Tour attendees now walk through historic Center Square and Hudson/Park neighborhoods to view upwards of 75 decorated stoops and several private gardens open to the public that day.
In addition to the self-guided walking tour, the event features an array of family friendly activities located in the Hudson/Jay Park:
- A Stoop Decorating Contest that guests can stroll through at their leisure. Attendees can vote for their favorites!
- Hudson/Jay Park activities include:
- Marvelous Market with a variety of vendors
- Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners providing free gardening advice
- Flower Pot Contest and Raffle
- And more!
Never been on the Stroll? Here’s how it works
Once you register your name(s) will go on the guest list for the Stoop Stroll. We cannot give out maps and programs ahead of time.
On the day of the Stroll, maps/programs must be picked up (for the preregistered individuals) and you can register from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in front of Trinity Church (235 Lark Street). The stroll is a self-guided, go-at-your-own-pace, whatever-order-you-desire type tour! Most of the homes are within walking distance to one another.
Many people find parking on the streets off of Lark Street or in Washington Park. There are also pay-to-park lots on the corner of Hamilton and Swan Streets (you will have to come down Swan from Madison Ave. and enter from Swan St) and at 208 Washington Ave.
🌸 Special thanks to our Stroll sponsors!
We hope to see you at the Stroll!
All contributions are nonrefundable. Stroll happens rain or shine!
