Clifton Park is a popular Capital District town located south of Saratoga Springs and north of Albany. Its southernmost location in Saratoga County provides commuters with easy access to nearby employment opportunities, both in the county as well as in the Albany/Schenectady/Troy area, yet residents enjoy an environment that reflects the suburban appeal of the town’s many neighborhoods and hamlets.
Capital District residents often think of Clifton Park as a popular place to shop and dine, and the Exit 9 area offers a wide variety of familiar retail and restaurant chains. For many, this adds to the area’s appeal as everything you could possibly need can usually be found just a short drive away.
Additionally, Clifton Park isn’t far from Albany, Saratoga, and the Lake George Region. This makes a wide variety of events and attractions in the surrounding geographic area easily accessible from homes in the Clifton Park area. Everything from nature preserves to world-class entertainment venues will be just a short drive away.
And, if easy access to metropolitan areas, work, dining and shopping isn’t enough to entice homeowners, the town’s schools generally receive high marks. The Shenendehowa Central School District boasts a graduation rate of 91%, above many other districts in the surrounding area.
As mentioned previously, Clifton Park is a terrific location when it comes to employment opportunities. Its proximity to the Albany/Schenectady/Troy area makes it an easy commute to the many job opportunities within the Capital Region.
