The tennis courts at Chubb Park are open for use from mid-March through mid-December, weather permitting. The Ice Skating Pond is monitored by Township volunteers for safe skating conditions. No skating is permitted on the pond until a minimum thickness of four inches is achieved. When the ice is safe for skating, a green skating is permitted sign is placed at the Ice Skating Shelter. Unsafe ice conditions are signified by red no skating sign at the shelter.
The athletic fields and show ground facilities at Chubb Park are available for group reservation each year. Most athletic programs serving the Chester area use the park during their seasons. Groups are required to present an application for reservation of the park and a Certificate of Liability Insurance for the organization.
Athletic groups serving Chester area youth must complete criminal history background checks for all administrators and volunteers.
Applications are reviewed for approval by the Park Advisory Committee at their monthly meeting. Groups seeking to reserve facilities at Chubb Park should file applications a minimum of sixty days prior to the event or season start-up. Some events require the payment of a fee and damage security deposit as well as evidence of insurance.
Chubb Park is the site of several annual events. The Chester Volunteer Fire Company’s annual Carnival & Fireworks is held each year during the last week of June. Each July, the Morris County 4-H Fair takes place and in late September, the Chester Lions Club hosts their annual Octoberfest.
