Frear Park is partly in the Middleburgh section of Troy and partly in Batestown, the latter having been part of the Town of Lansingburgh from 1807 to 1836 when it was annexed by the City of Troy. Much of the area north of the Piscawenkill, what is now the majority of the golf links and the perimeter trail, would have been part of Lansingburgh for those years.
