The Town hosts year-round Parks & Recreation activities, is home to many professional services including 24-hour police protection, ambulance service and hundreds of dedicated volunteers who deliver fire fighting services. Additionally, you will find a wide range of services and staff at Town Hall that can assist you with your local government needs.

Whether you live in Chester, or are thinking of moving to Chester, I encourage you to utilize our many beautiful parks, whether for passive enjoyment or for the activities provided there. Some of the activities that can be enjoyed at our Town Park Facilities include our annual Fireworks Show, Movie Nights in the Park, Winter Sledding, Summer Camp, Nature Hikes, Ice Skating Rink and many more.

If you are an existing business, or are considering making Chester your retail or commercial home, we offer a “business friendly” atmosphere which includes a staff at town hall that can guide you towards making our community meet your needs.

Also, you can watch our previous meetings and other up to date happenings in the town, on our Community Channel on Cablevision channel 21 or on the town’s YouTube account.
