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!”
There have recently been sightings of coyotes and foxes in certain areas of the town and are the result of other species giving birth. Please consider keeping your cats indoors and do not leave your dogs outside unattended. If you wish to report that a wild animal is wandering near humans and you believe it may be diseased or rabid, contact State Police at 518-583-7000 or the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office at 518-885-6761 immediately. Police will respond to the incident and will contact the Town’s Animal Control Office, which is on call 24 hours a day.
With the warm weather having finally arrived families of all ages are spending more time than ever outdoors. As we do so it is always good to refresh on being safe outdoors with ticks and mosquitos.
The warm weather has arrived. Every year as Spring arrives the warm weather increases activity in our neighborhoods and parks. We ask that you take some simple precautions and actions to help us maintain a safe environment for everyone.
