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!”
The skate park has been closed effective Monday, July 6, 2020 due to vandalism. The park will not be reopening until repairs have been made and the park is safe once again for skaters and spectators alike
From Supervisor Barret:
This year’s pool season will be very different than any of the other 20 years the Town has owned the pools. The schedule, standard operational procedures and new rules will significantly change the dynamics of our pools. Our goal is to provide the best possible experience for Clifton Park families, under the restrictive conditions we must follow. We appreciate your cooperation and patience to help everyone have an enjoyable and successful pool season. The young men and women who work at the pools along with our management team, will be adjusting to some different operational elements and they also will need your cooperation.
We have listed the schedule and policies for the 2020 pool season in the attached document. The Country Knolls Pool and Barney Road Pool will open July 4th. The Locust Lane Pool will remain closed for the season. There will only be daily passes available and the number of people allowed within the pool grounds at one time will be less than the normal capacity limits allow. We will not be able to allow use of some of the pool features and protective masks will be required upon entry.
Please review the information below for more details. Daily Pass tickets can be purchased at the Parks and Recreation Office on the first floor of Town Hall between the hours of 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday. Unfortunately, due to capacity limitations only Clifton Park residents will be able to purchase tickets so please have identification available. We will continually assess all policies for the pools as conditions and new guidelines from NYS are established.

With the arrival of summer many residents are having backyard campfires and using sparkling devices. With temperatures reaching into the 90s and very little rain the Capital Region is experiencing very dry conditions which could lead to fires.
The Clifton Park Water Authority has issued a ban on outdoor unattended watering to help lower the demand currently being placed on the water system.
The Clifton Park Town Board reminds everyone that County Waste will once again be conducting free, curbside yard waste pick-up service for Clifton Park residents in 2020. The service will be offered beginning March 30th through the end of November weather permitting.
