If you would like to find out more about Friends of Chester Woods and how you can become involved, pick up a brochure at the gate house.
Friends of Chester Woods funds and/or assists with many projects in the park that enhance visitors experiences, provide programming, and/or upgrade amenities in the park. Your contributions are greatly appreciated because park entrance fees go to the County, not the park.
Chester Woods County Park has established a "Legacy Trail" close to the park office. The purpose of this paved trail is to have a location for our patrons to have a spot of solitude in the developed area, and a location where loved ones can be remembered. This remembrance is in the form of brass leaves which will be engraved and then secured to vertical metal art work. All proceeds in excess of the cost of the leaves will be used for enhancements in programming and facilities in Chester Woods. Use the Activities tab above to find the Legacy Trail brochure that you can download.
Chester Woods is a park with a variety of many natural features. Click the link below to watch a slideshow video of the park. We've recently added an interview video with our Park Manager.
