Chester Township

Chester Township, thanks in large part to the mission of its first Planning Board in the late 1950's, has become a premier open space repository, setting aside over one-third of its thirty square miles in public ownership. The Borough and the Township, while separate communities, continue to enjoy a close relationship and share schools, fire protection, first aid squad, athletic programs, a community pool, and service clubs. A few active farms attract local residents and visitors to purchase their wares. Chester Township remains an attractive community offering a "country" atmosphere together with good schools, excellent services, a downtown village business area, large parks, recreational facilities, and easy access to cultural centers.
