Garnsey Park

Garnsey Park is a beautiful town park of more than 140 acres, located on the north side of
Tony Wilkinson (in center) and Bill Koebbeman (far left) led an afternoon, guided nature walk on May 17, 2014.
NYS Route 146, immediately east of Garnsey Road and Nott Road.  The large public natural area includes open fields and meadow habitat, wetlands, and forest.  Eagle Scouts have created several trail loops: throughout the meadows, and two loops up on the ridge through the forest area.  Spring is a wonderful time to visit and look for birds of all kinds. The Town of Clifton Park Open Space, Trails & Riverfront Committee spearheaded a series of guided nature walks on May 17, 2014, include two hikes at Garnsey Park led by volunteers Tony Wilkinson, Alison Crocker, David J. Miller, Bill Koebbeman, and Troy Weldy. 

There are many benches to take a load off your feet and watch the wildlife. Last time I visited I saw a large hawk, which soared right over my head.

  1. A stewardship walk will be conducted at Garnsey Park on Friday, October 4, 2013 at 1 p.m. to evaluate site conditions. The public is invited to join in the walk led by Town of Clifton Park staff. Please dress for rugged, uneven terrain, and be prepared for potential wet ground conditions as the walk may be near wetlands as well as uplands. To RSVP, call 371-6054.
