Clifton Park is a suburban town in Saratoga County, New York, United States. According to the United States Census Bureau, the 2020 population was 38,209 and is approximately 50 square miles in size.
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 Clifton Park 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!”
We have some policy updates for the upcoming 2023 summer!
We no longer designate “primary pool”; your membership allows you full access to all three town pools, and you may now bring guests to any of the pools. Each membership is allowed to bring unlimited guests (regardless of residency) on SEVEN OCCASIONS. Guests are no longer considered “out of town” or “local.” The guest fee remains a low cost of $5 per person, with children aged 3 and younger free.
As a reminder (not changed from previous years):
Failure to adhere to the pool regulations, and the rules posted at the pools,
MAY RESULT IN REVOCATION OF MEMBERSHIP.
Please contact the Office of Parks and Recreation with questions or concerns.
