Supervisor Peter Crummey is happy to announce that after nearly 20 years, Ice Skating returns to the Town's Pocket Park Network. For residents who want to make ice skating a part of their winter memories, the West Albany Pocket Park is hosting an ice-skating rink. 


Skating at the park will be daily until dusk and is dependent on the ice and weather conditions. Supervisor Crummey stated, “I would like to re-introduce outdoor ice skating in our parks and this venue is a great opportunity to bring families and the community together.” We hope you will visit us at the West Albany Pocket Park and create some great traditions with your family and friends.


The West Albany Pocket Park is located on the corner of Braintree and Newton Streets and provides plenty of parking. Pocket Park parking is also available off of Exchange Street.

Supervisor Peter Crummey is ecstatic to unveil the newly renovated courts at Kiwanis Park. The park is now the home of two basketball courts and two pickleball courts. Supervisor Crummey stated, “Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the United States and we are responding to the increase in local interest. I will continue our commitment to the recreational interests of our community.”

Due to its popularity, the demand to play often exceeds available court space in the Capital Region. Kiwanis Park is the first Town park to be renovated and will be followed next year by new pickleball and tennis courts at the Mohawk River Park on Schermerhorn Road. 


Kiwanis Park is located on Rt. 2, east of the Latham Traffic Circle on 1st Avenue in Latham.

Supervisor Crummey Highlights Neighborhood Beautification - Chippendale Court


“Across the Town of Colonie, we are fortunate to have residents who love their community enough to use their own time and resources to improve their neighborhoods. Homeowners on Chippendale Court in Latham have recently taken the initiative to beautify the island on their cul-de-sac. With updated landscaping and the removal of overgrown brush and weeds, the reimagined circle is a prime example of how community care and a common goal can have a dramatic and positive impact on our neighborhoods. I enjoyed my visit there today at the request of the neighborhood and I thank them for their efforts,” said Colonie Town Supervisor Peter G. Crummey.

Peter Discusses His Position on Stony Creek Reservoir

...As you know, the Stony Creek Reservoir is situated in the Town of Clifton Park and was long ago purchased by our town and established as our reservoir in 1953.  This purchase of land, and the water it contains, was accomplished under the leadership and foresight of longtime Colonie town Republican supervisor, William K. Sanford, for the purpose of providing an additional source of water for our town.


...Further, I am unaware of any candidate, seeking town election this year, proposing to sell our town's reservoir.  The reservoir remains a valuable asset to our town and should remain as such.
