Clifton Park is a suburban town in Saratoga County, New York, United States. According to the United States Census Bureau, the 2010 population was 36,705.
The name is derived from an early land patent. The town is in the south part of the county and is located approximately 12 miles north of Albany, 7 miles northeast of Schenectady, and 10 miles south of Saratoga Springs. Recognized for our outstanding quality of life, smart growth practices, numerous parks, extensive recreation programs, a 15 mile trail network, the Clifton Common sports complex (host to a variety of national, state and regional tournaments), the excellent Shenendehowa School System, an active Shenendehowa Senior Community Center and emerging business centers, we are a model growth community. Clifton Park has preserved and restored significant historic sites, such as the Grooms Tavern, and has acquired, protected, preserved and purchased development rights on over 1000 acres, balancing our rural roots with innovative residential designs and twenty-first century economic development in New York’s Tech Valley. Clifton Park remains true to its motto: “Clifton Park – A Great Place to Live, Work and Play!”
The Town Board has recently approved extended hours at the Town Transfer Station for the annual Spring Clean Up / Green Up Week to include the following Sundays, April 22nd and April 29th.
Late 2017 we released information about improvements being considered for the Playground on the Common(Kids’ Corner). As we consider options and ideas for the park, we provided an update at last evening’s Town Board Meeting on two items.
It's that time of year again! The Town of Clifton Park and the GREEN Committee has announced its annual spring Cleanup Day for our trails, parks and open spaces. Join us as we continue this amazing, community powered event!
