The Chestnut Ridge Conservancy

The Chestnut Ridge Conservancy is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established to work closely with the Erie County Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry to be of help as an added resource for restoration and improvements to, and the hosting of events, in Chestnut Ridge Park.  Generous contributions of time and talent from our Board of Directors as well as financial contributions from the public make our mission possible.

The Chestnut Ridge Conservancy’s 2020 Initiatives

Along with the various Park events we are sponsoring or co-sponsoring throughout the year (eg. United Way Day of Caring, Tennis Tournaments, Movie Nights, 10K Race,  Kite Festival, Santa Land & Winter Fest), we will also be endeavouring on some capital projects in the park as well.  First, we’re hoping to get some if not all of the tennis court light fixtures replaced and operating again as well as repair or replace court fencing.  Second, we have also budgeted for additional stonework restoration within the casino.  Third, we have committed $25,000 as seed funding to kick off our fund drive for a significant “all inclusive” playground to be located in the Park.   See more about this on our Playground Initiative’s page.
