Chestnut Ridge Park is a 1,213-acre (4.91 km2) park in Orchard Park, New York, originally named for the chestnut trees on its hills. It is currently the largest park operated by the Erie County Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry, and is open year-round.
The Chestnut Ridge Park property was acquired by Erie County in 1926, and it was one of the first parks established by the county. The park's facilities and landscapes were improved substantially by the Works Progress Administration throughout the 1930s.

  • Trails, swings, picnic areas, Disc (Frisbee) Golf, sledding, and tobogganing in the winter, there is so much to do in this park. About a mile south is the beginning of the trail to the Eternal Flame.....  more

  • We love taking our dogs here to hike. There are some great trails although some can get a bit steep so they are not all senior dog friendly but most are. There are bathrooms all over, they are clean and accessible. There are numerous pavilions and places to pull off and park once inside. There is a casino you can rent for parties and in the winter there is an amazing hill for sledding.
  • We stopped here on our way out of Buffalo back to Ohio & it was awesome. The trail to the Eternal Flame was good for our family & we loved the flame. Highly recommend.
