Along the bike path and other park trails passing through Blatnick Park, one can view the scenic Mohawk River and go birding by the Blatnick Grasslands. The Town of Niskayuna has put forth habitat preservation and no-mow initiatives to preserve the natural habitats of the bobolink and meadowlark, species dwindling in New York State that have been identified in the area.
Blatnick Park is full of recreation, containing a rentable pavilion, a splash pad for children, a basketball court, lighted tennis courts, playgrounds, a dog park, a baseball diamond, a pond, a connection to the Mohawk-Hudson bike trail and a disc golf course.
The Mohawk-Hudson Bike Trail passing through connects to Lock 7 and various side trails, exploring the forest and streams along the river. Full of biodiversity, this portion of the trail is perfect for those seeking animal sightings.
