Where We Live: Orchard Park

Orchard Park

The Chamber of Commerce departed from its usual habit and bestowed a quarterly Community Beautifcation Award to the Chestnut Ridge Conservancy instead of a local business.

The nonprofit founded in 2010 to help the county make improvements to Chestnut Ridge Park just finished a two-year effort restore the five murals in the casino lodge.

Other Conservancy projects include windscreens for the tennis courts, benches, gardens, pet waste stations and an Eagle Scout collaboration to restore baseball diamond bleachers.
