Castle Rock now public!

Castle Rock 900

Friday, March 23, 2018


The Hike to Castle Rock scheduled for tomorrow (Sat. March 24) has been postponed due to the heavy snow we received the last 24 hours. The new date will be Saturday, May 5 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.


Castle Rock in East River is the Municipality of Chester's newest public open space. Previously private property, it was sold to the Municipality along with another, smaller parcel so the public could enjoy the popular spot overlooking the Mahone Bay.

We are hosting a guide hike! Please join us on Saturday, May 5, 2018 for a tour of the picturesque location. Click here for more details!
