Welcome to the Town of Clifton Park

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!”

Arbor Day Celebration - As part of our Arbor Day celebration, the Town offers a free tree seedling to all Clifton Park families who have had a baby born between Arbor Day 2015 (April 24) and Arbor Day 2016 (April 29). Families can register with the Office of Parks, Recreation and Community Affairs located in Town Hall. Submit a photo with the registration form and all pictures will be displayed in Town Hall the week of May 2. Deadline for registration is April 11, 2016.

The week of May 2, parents can come to Town Hall and pick up a free seedling tree to be planted on their property as a "birth tree" for the child. The hope is that these trees will grow up with the child and add to the child's appreciation of nature and the conservation of wildlife.
