Chestnut Branch Park
Named for the Chestnut Branch of the Mantua Creek, Chestnut Branch Park is more than 109 acres and includes athletic fields and facilities and two wooded areas of rolling hills with scenic trails and diverse wildlife. Along the edge of the fields, there are some wetlands that attract grassland birds as well as woodland species. A paved path circles the athletic fields, and bicyclists and walkers make use of this pathway. Follow the path to the right from the parking lot to get to the Butterfly Garden. The best time for viewing is mid day in the summer. Continue on the path and you arrive at the 9/11 Memorial Place of Reflection with benches within a landscaped grove. This park has tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball court, playground, picnic tables and a pavilion. The fun continues year-round as this is a popular place for individuals & families to come sledding in the winter months.
The pavilion can be reserved for family reunions, birthday parties, etc. by calling the Township Office at 856-468-1500 x110.
