Announcing Bill Foelsch Field


At its annual inspection of the parks system on May 8th, the Chester Township Parks Committee proudly announced that the first field at the new and improved Black River Fields will be dedicated as “Bill Foelsch Field”. As Chester Township’s parks consultant for decades, Bill Foelsch has been instrumental in the creation of the town’s modern park system, involved in nearly all park improvement since the 1980’s.

“Bill Foelsch may be called our parks consultant, but we all know he’s much more than that. He’s been our parks superintendent, our parks expert, and our parks champion,” said Mayor Mike Inganamort. “He knows every blade of grass in Chester Township’s parks system, and that’s hardly an exaggeration. We are a better, stronger, more beautiful town because of Bill Foelsch.”

“I cannot think of anyone who has put such an incredible mark on the Chester Township park system other than Bill,” said Rich Prado, a longtime member and former Chairman of the Parks Committee. “His expertise and knowledge of our town in the ways of local and state government and navigating the system to get things done is unmatched. Bill has always helped craft the vision and execute the parks plan. Over time he has had a remarkably positive impact on Chester Township.”

A permanent plaque and stone will be unveiled this summer.
