Recreation Commission

The Parks and Recreation Commission was established in 1983 pursuant to RSA 35B and is a volunteer commission appointed by the Board of Selectmen.  The Commission works with the Recreation Director to plan and implement a wide range of civic, cultural and recreational opportunities for all residents of Chester. In addition, responsibilities include developing and administering the Recreation budget and ensuring the safety, development and quality of the towns parks and recreation facilities. 

Chester residents are encouraged to attend the Recreation Commission meetings which are held on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month at 7:30 PM to gain an understanding of the ongoing work of the Commission.  As Chester continues to grow, we continue to bring a wide variety of leisure programs for all ages and abilities.  Recreation is actively looking for additional volunteers to assist in the rapidly growing recreational needs of the community.  We invite you to get involved!
