              NEW YORK 



WELCOME!  Galway is a town located in Saratoga County, New York.  As of the 2010 census, the town had a total population of 3,545. The town contains a village also named Galway. Both the town and village are located in the western part of the county. Galway is a rural community with a mixture of small business, farming, and residential homes. The town is home to both year round and seasonal residents. It was originally named New Galloway after Galloway in Scotland. When the town was incorporated, however, it was incorrectly recorded as Galway. Although the spelling is the same as Galway, Ireland, it is not pronounced the same.

No Dogs at Recreation Field
May 26, 2016
Effective immediately no dogs will be allowed on the recreation field grounds.  We will be posting signs stating that dogs are no longer allowed on the recreation fields.  It is appears that some of the public that run their dogs on the field do not clean up after their animals.  This has resulted in dog waste being left in the playing fields where the games are played.  Young players have slipped in dog waste on the grounds.  We also have been notified of the potential liablilty in allowing dogs to be off leash or be present where there may be games being played and congregations of public to watch the games.  Thank you for your cooperation.
