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 2019 Initiatives
Along with the various Park events we are sponsoring or co-sponsoring throughout the year (eg. Fishing Derby, United Way Day of Caring, Tennis Tournaments, Movie Night, 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. Second, we have also budgeted for additional stonework restoration and the casino’s floor refinishing. Third, we are looking to work with the Parks Department to improve the Eternal Flame Trail Head area to include some seating benches and picnic tables and laying of crushed stone on the trial head. Fourth and 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. See more about this on our Playground Initiative’s page.
