We went up to Albany to see a CrossFit competition recently and have to say the facility was really nice. Beyond the organization of the event, the bathrooms and other areas of the Times Union Center were all really nice, clean and well maintained.

Recently attended a concert at the TU center. Fairly good acoustics. Large clean rest rooms. Much better venue now that they have completely enclosed it. Parking at the nearby garage was a bit pricey at $20. Enjoyable night out.

Saw a basketball game here. The facility was right next to the main highways so getting out was no problem. Parking was 10 dollars, which was not bad for a major sporting event. The Center was clean and well maintained. The only drawback is the...More

We attended an indoor auto racing event here. The lobby is beautiful and there are a lot of places to eat and enjoy beverages. The prices are your average arena prices, but the facility was clean and well maintained.

I’m not sure, there’s plenty of parking garages and lots close to Times Union. Reasonably priced for events starting from $10 per vehicle and up. Hope this helps.
