The historic Clifton Band Shell recently sustained heavy damage from a fallen oak. This incident heightens the need to address the disrepair that has befallen the legacy buildings (Band Shell, Valve House, and Gardener’s Cottage) in the park.
Please come out to Clifton Mansion at Saturday, February 16th at 11:00 am to help plan the Friends of Clifton Park strategy for addressing the issue of revitalizing these buildings. Breakfast will be served.
