Clifton park provides a ton of fun activities and restaurants for its residents.There is over 50 restaurants and they are all different types of cultural food.The diversity in Clifton Park is very large , which is great because it gives the residence opportunity to learn about other cultures.The only poor thing about Clifton PARK is there is a large amount of waisted empty buildings there, which could be nature there instead of a empty building.

Clifton Park is an alright place. Like others have said, there's not much to do unless you like bowling. Clifton Park is a good distance away from many great ski resorts. Shen is the biggest school and gives you a lot of opportunities to meet new people, provided that you seek these opportunities of course. You never have to worry about safety and traffic is subtle. There's many good jobs around here, which is one of the main reasons why the house market is a bit on the higher end. Diversity wise, people are mostly White and the biggest minorities are Asian and Indian.
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.
