Pat's Forge

Mill Road
Albany, NY 12209

Pat's Forge is located in Normanskill Farm, a city-owned park and active farm. The park has the largest of Albany's community gardens, a dog park, hiking trails, a working farm, historic farm buildings, and a historic whipple truss bridge from 1867. The Albany Mounted Police Unit's draft horses are also kept here. The domesticated ducks and geese that call Washington Park home are brought to Stevens Farm every year for winter accommodations.

Where's Pat's Forge?

Getting to the smithy is pretty easy if you've been there before. For newcomers, you can't see the building from either the road or where you park, so here are some helpful pictures:
