Brief History

The newly-redesigned 7th Avenue Park, located at the intersection of 7th and Ingalls Avenue in North Central Troy, is officially open! Approximately $1.2M was invested to upgrade the park into a modern recreational facility for the enjoyment of Troy families and children.

Approximately half the project costs were funded by the City, with additional funds provided by private funders, and through the One Troy initiative with support from the Empire State Poverty Reduction Initiative (ESPRI). Additional state grant funds for the project were secured by Senator Neil Breslin and Assemblyman John McDonald.

On June 19th, 2021, the park was dedicated as “Geneva Pompey Park” in honor of longtime North Central Troy resident, Geneva Pompey. She has resided at her home on Ingalls Avenue, located directly adjacent to the park, since 1968. A grassroots effort led by neighbors and community members successfully petitioned the City to dedicate the park in honor of Ms. Pompey.
