Clifton Park is a classic white suburban town. It’s a good place to grow up but there is not a whole lot to do.
I like Clifton Park I have been living here for 17 years now. Though it is a very hard commute to Albany and Troy for work. It can sometimes take an hour and a half to drive home after work because of traffic. I wish there were more jobs closer to Clifton Park. There is a lot of restaurants, fast food and quick eatery like Panera around Clifton Park. There is definitely no shortage of places to eat for food. Though there is a shortage of what to do. There is no aquarium or public zoo nearby. Also, there isn't a Museum in the area. Though overall it is a great place to live because of the warm welcoming and involved community.
I love the schools and the stores that are in the town. It feels like it takes forever to get anywhere, so that is bad, but the scenery is good.
A lot of malls with not a lot of traffic. Everything is convenient and local from where I live. It's quiet at night and I feel safe. Parks are nearby and numerous restaurants with wide prices ranges. I love the Price chopper market 32 and Walmart is not to far away.
It's a mostly suburban and beautiful area to live. Has a ton of restaurants, stores and entertainment. The mall here isn't the best but has a few things and is probably better for the summer time as it has openings like an outlet. Overall, I really enjoy living in Clifton Park.
It's quiet and the scenery is nice, but nothing is open past midnight and it's a bit more expensive than one would realize. The city is kept up well, even if some side roads don't seem it. And a major highway runs right through it.
Clifton park is a great place for families. Everything you could think of is in driving distance. However, living here can be pricey.
Clifton Park is a quaint town with the largest suburban high school in the state of New York. It has many little stores and shopping plazas, however, there isn't that much to do unless you like bowling. If you ask me, there should be more fun activities for teens so they don't have to drive all the way to Albany to have that experience. Also, for the sake of a better education, I think that Shen (the high school) should be turned into two schools. That way, not every graduating class has to be 800 students and high schoolers can get a better, more focused education.
Clifton Park is an up and coming town. There are many shops and restaurants. It is clean and the crime rate is low. There are still some farm stands around that are on the honor system....take your items and put the money in a box.....there are not many places where you will find that!
This is a great place to live. Although I live in a neighboring school district, my street address is Clifton Park and I am closer to the center of the town. As a result, I do much of my shopping, eating out, and entertainment in Clifton Park. There are a variety of options for food service, from plenty of fast food to high-end restaurants. The town boasts a shopping mall with unique designers and large chain retail stores as well as a movie theater. As someone who likes to be active, Clifton Park is a great place to do so- from the convenient location of the local YMCA to plenty of parks and walking paths.
Clifton Park, in my opinion, is one of the best suburbs in the area. People from the surrounding area tell people from here that they wish they could live here. The amount of promise and oppertunity there is in this town is outstanding. Some of the best schools systems in the region, the best dining, and some of the friendliest and most accepting neighbourhoods.
I moved to this area when I got married about 3 years ago, but I have always been around this area. I go to church in Clifton Park and a lot of my friends live in this area. It is a wonderful area to live in and I prefer it over neighboring areas like Albany, Troy, and Schenectady.
There are tons of teenagers in Clifton Park who attend Shenendehowa school district, so there are lots of family/young people activities like movie theaters and lots of places to eat. It's generally a very safe place and I have never felt in danger here. Lots of doctors offices and small businesses, along with fast food and stores for teens and adults to work. Overall it's a great town to live in.
Clifton Park is a family friendly suburb 20 minutes north of Albany. Excellent place to live with great schools,excellent shopping and restaurants.
The police are very attentive and make sure they are doing their jobs at all times. Always willing to help anyone. Crime is very low, only really petty theft occurs by people breaking into cars in some neighborhoods but it's relatively minimum.
Clifton Park is a beautiful town, with many residents mostly families. There is not really a ton of crime besides some petty theft. There is a lot of nature trails, woods, and biking/running trails to explore so it is good for athletes. The area is, however, expensive to live in because of the increase in residents and because most entertainment you have to pay for. The school's here are lovely and get any child prepared for college.
Great town where you can run into the same group of people. everything is convenient and it is easy to get around town. Very safe environment for raising a family. The school district is large but managed in a way to make it seem small. I have no plans to leave the area.
There is literally no crime that takes place in Clifton park its a very safe area to live in
