Albany's newest park, the Peggy Thomsen Pierce Street Park, on the west side of Albany Hill is perfect for monkey-bar lovers. This Albany Hill playground has two play structures that focus on climbing, hanging, and jumping, so my boys enjoy going here and shouting “Mom, look at me!” There is also a fenced-in area for younger toddlers.
The park is surrounded by grass, however, it's still fenced in and not yet accessible. There are clean bathrooms and picnic tables, but beware, there is no shade.
Peggy Thomsen Pierce Street Park is located at 720 Pierce St, Albany. You can find it on your way to 99 Ranch Market to pick up moon cakes, or spot it on the freeway on your way home from Costco.
