Park Spotlight - Chester Park

Chester Park is only a little small park in our city, but gets LOTS of use. Mainly because of the famous "Al and Alma's Supper Club and Dinner Cruises".

Chester Park - A park enhancing the area

This is a very quaint park, with a small beach on Cooks Bay, a small playground, and access to Al and Alma's docks, and some public docks.

Al and Almas, Piper Rd going to the right.

No on street parking here, it's right off the infamous 'no parking allowed' Tuxedo Blvd  and Piper Rd. Piper Rd is a road that was designed for days when it was just cabins, and is very narrow. On street parking would be very impracticable here. I imagine Al and Alma's wouldn't mind if you parked in their lot.

This park is clearly being used often, though I imagine most of its users are customer's of Al and Almas, though I'm sure neighboring residents take advantage of it.

This is a park that enhances the neighborhood, including an important local business, definintely a "Place in Mound."
