Lordly Park

109 Central Street, Chester, Nova Scotia

Situated in an entire village block of the original town plan for Chester. The park area contains; a natural wetland, a children's playground, a Gazebo, and a skating and games berm. The original property included Lordly House, several barns (no longer here today), and a small municipal office known as "Maple Cottage", all nestled within the meadow.

To book the park for an event, a charge of $25.00 is required. A charge of $100.00 is required for weddings. This helps to cover the cost of upkeep for Lordly Park.

Lordly Park also hosts numerous summer events annually. Some events include: "Picnic in the Park", a live music event every sunny Tuesday from July 5th to August 30, 6:00 to 8:00 PM, and Sept 6th from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.

This private park is enjoyed by visitors every year, with different groups utilizing the unique areas like the playground, Gazebo, field and berm area. Some groups include the Chester Art Centre, the Chester Playhouse, the Chester Croquet League (CCL) and many youth groups, and excerise enthusiasts. The berm area is typically converted into a skating rink in the winter months.
