Park & Trail User Survey

We would like to thank the nearly 2,000 participants who have completed our Park & Trail User Survey. Developed as part of the County’s Strategic Plan, the survey is to help us improve our services.

Please take a moment to tell us how we are going. Stop by a park office for a paper copy or complete the online survey


Putting a Face on Chester County
The Chester County Planning Commission launched a Landscapes3 photo contest to highlight the county’s greatest asset: people. 

The photos can focus on people in several different settings, including businesses, homes, downtowns, public community events, and outdoors, among others.

Any Chester County Park would be a great location to capture 
people who live, work, visit or play in Chester County.

 View rules and submit your entries by October 13.
