Chestnut Branch Park
Director of Parks and Grounds: Bill Pine
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.
