Last week the corner of Chester and West Hundred roads got a little love. Called Chester Park, the pocket park had become somewhat of an eyesore, and according to members of the Chester Community Association (CCA) it wasn’t a good representation of the community.
The group took funds from its treasury to trim trees, plant flowers and mulch. The group also spruced up the sign and had it refaced since it was in desperate need of revitalization.
The CCA wanted the corner to look good for those attending ChesterFest and riding the trolley-style shuttles back and forth to the Thomas Dale High School parking lot. The group intends to keep the park clean and attractive into the future.
