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!”
Update 6/8/23: After the issues with the previous contractor the Town embarked on a very quick planning and procurement process following the destruction of the trail. A request for bids went out and the Town received no bids for the trail reconstruction project. A new bid process will commence immediately.
Update 5/12/23: The Town Board has been working to repave the trails that connect neighborhoods such as The Oaks, Summerhill, Addison Estates and Settlers Hill in recent years. All of the trails have been successfully repaved except for the trail connecting Miller Road to Wallflower Drive. Due to some difficulty experienced by the contractor while performing the work, this section of trail will require extensive repairs. Therefore, we have closed the trail until the repairs are completed. Town personnel are reviewing the situation and a plan of action to complete the repairs is being devised. Thank you for your patience.
Update 6/8/2023: The Country Knolls Pool liner replacement project will be completed next week. When an opening day has been determined it will be posted immediately.
