TOWN OF HADLEY RESIDENTS
are now accepting letters of interest for new members.
Welcome to the Town of Hadley
Hadley is a small town (approximately 2000 residents) located in the Adirondack Park. We are the northernmost town in Saratoga County. We believe our town is a beautiful place to raise a family and a great place to visit while enjoying nature, friends and families. We are proud of our 2 town parks, both of which can be used for family gatherings, weddings, relaxation or just a place to bring yourself and the kids for a walk or to play. In the Spring of 2007, we upgraded our baseball fields in the Sam Smead Memorial Park by grating the fields and creating clay infields. The baseball & softball enthusiasts took full advantage of these upgrades. A 2-day tournament held in August collected items and money for our troops overseas. Some of the money raised was also donated to the Hadley-Luzerne Scholarship Fund. The tournament was held in memory of Steve Madison, a young soldier from Corinth (our neighboring town) who made the ultimate sacrifice.
We also pride ourselves with some walking trails along the Hudson & Sacandaga Rivers where you will find a canoe takeout on the Hudson while enjoying the peace and serenity of nature. You can also enjoy watching the rafters and kayakers at Dean Mountain Whitewater Park along the Sacandaga River which we consider the best whitewater in New York Sate. For the avid or average hiker, Hadley Mountain offers a steady moderate 1.8 mile climb and is located about 8 miles from the center of town on Tower Road and when you reach the summit you will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the mountains and the restored Hadley Fire Tower.
