East Greenbush (East Greenbush Schools) Real Estate
East Greenbush is a suburban town in Rensselaer County, New York. Albany is only 6 miles away, or “just on the other side of the river”. The major road cutting across town is Columbia Turnpike, and is also known as “9 and 20″ because it consists of US Route 9 and US Route 20. Neighborhoods include Avian Meadows, Clinton Heights, Hampton Manor and Sherwood Park.
The terrain in East Greenbush is possibly one of the most diverse in the region. Bordering the Hudson River to the southwest, the land becomes flat with frequent marshy areas. As found on the town website, “The land then rises abruptly to the east to an upland area featuring diviersified topography. The upland areas have many hills, gently rolling terrain and streams. The eastern portion of the town is generally hilly with areas of steep slopes with the steepest slopes in the northeastern portion, associated with the Taconic Mountain Range.”
The East Greenbush Central School District (five elementary schools, one middle school, and Columbia High School) serves a student population of approximately 4,600. The school district currently ranks within the top 5 districts in the Capital Region. The school’s mission is “To promote the maximum growth of every child who is served educationally by its programs and services.”
The town has several gorgeous parks. Onderdonk Park is home to many get-togethers for the community with live music, numerous activities and food vendors for residents to enjoy. The playground at Hampton Lake was totally re-done Summer 2016. The East Greenbush Town Park is located at the end of Town Park Road. It boasts acres of walking trails, 2 pavilions, fishing in the pond, grills, a playground, softball field, volleyball, horseshoes, and a Dog Park.
