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 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!”
Clifton Park Highway Superintendent Dahn Bull has announced that Carlton Road between Van Patten Drive and Kinns Road has been reopened to traffic. The road had previously been closed for several days as a new subbase, base, and binder had been placed on a damaged section of Carlton Road from a recent water main rupture.
As part of the reopening, a temporary traffic pattern has been delineated with traffic cones to allow travel on the most stable portions of Carlton Road, while the remainder continues to drain and cure from the result of repairs implemented earlier in the week. As that portion of Carlton Road is already one-way, it provides for an opportunity to easily manage the traffic pattern as the new road continues to settle. Best practices show that this is the most responsible and appropriate approach to reopening Carlton Road.
Locust Lane Pool will be closed Monday through Wednesday, June 28-30th, for a Water Safety Instructor training course. Both Barney Road Pool and Country Knolls Pool will be open for members during this time.
The Town of Clifton Park’s July 4th festivities will return to a traditional celebration. In 2020, the Town held a parade, but the annual fireworks show and live music we have enjoyed for many years, were cancelled due to Covid Pandemic restrictions. Following a review of newly released CDC and New York State guidelines for outdoor events, it was determined the live music, fireworks and concessions can return!
A full schedule of the day’s events will be released soon as we finalize all details. We can definitively state the parade will begin at noon and the exciting fireworks show will begin at dusk. The parade route will begin at the entrance to the Shen Campus on RT 146 and end on the Clifton Common.
We look forward to celebrating America’s birthday with you!
