Comments: In general This walk was designed to go near different community attractions, and specifically to celebrate our Special program, "Carousels across America". This will be an easy 1A 5 or 10k walk with two carousels that are in relatively close proximity with one another. Just North of our Carousel in Albany is a carousel in Salem. Plus our Year round Historic Albany walk goes by the Carousel as well. Tokens will also be provided for you to ride the Carousel. So make a day of it and get as many as 4 walks in that go by a Carousel.
