Welcome to the Chestnut Ridge Conservancy

Chestnut Ridge Park is a national treasure in our own backyard! Located in Erie County, just south of Buffalo in Orchard Park, NY, it is one of the largest county parks in the country. Chestnut Ridge is home to a place where fond memories have been, and will be, made for five generations and counting of Western New Yorkers.

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 help establish the direction for repairs and improvements in our beautiful park. Your generous contributions of time and talent make these improvements possible.

2019 Initiatives

Along with the Park events we sponsor throughout the year (eg. fishing derby, United Way Day of Caring, Tennis Tournament, Kite Festival, Santa Land), we will also be endeavouring on some capital projects in the park as well.  We’re hoping to get some if not all of the tennis courts light fixtures replaced and operating again. We have also budgeted for some additional stonework restoration and the casino floor refinishing.  Lastly, 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.  Check back soon on our web-site where we will have more information on the project and ways to donate.   

You can help us by joining today!

As a member, your tax-deductible contribution will be used to restore historic areas of the park (like the five murals inside of the casino), improve the signs inside of the park, enhance park usability, and improve access to some of the lesser-known features of Western New York’s natural wonder.

If you would rather donate without becoming a member, there are donation levels to meet every budget. Please contribute now to this worthy cause. Thank you for your support. The future of the park is in your hands!
