Welcome to Chester Park
Chester Park Cooperative is an innovative, non-profit, member-owned adult community made of people 55 years of age and older. It is a unique blend of community living and an independent lifestyle. The members of Chester Park Cooperative enjoy a maintenance free home that is secure, worry-free, and convenient.
Residents enjoy a real sense of community and camaraderie. Chester Park Cooperative homes are designed for adults who desire an active retirement; including all the benefits of home ownership without the burdens typically accompanying a single family home.
Chester Park Cooperative is a member-owned Cooperative run by an all-resident nine-member board elected by the membership. There are also other all resident committees that are vital to the operation of Chester Park Cooperative, including the finance committee, members’ forum, garden & landscape committee, hospitality, special events, acquisition, library, and the emergency preparedness committee.
Chester Park Cooperative does not have medical or care staff. Members must be able to live a self-managed lifestyle or employ outside caregivers if they need assistance with daily tasks or health care. Our Employees are trained to render assistance in an emergency, but members cannot rely on Staff or neighbors to provide care.
Chester Park Cooperative Members pay for their electricity (average of $40 per month), in-home internet and telephone; specialty cable channels (HBO, Showtime, etc.) are not covered by the common fee. Although not required, we strongly recommend that our residents purchase personal property insurance through their insurance agent. Personal property insurance is inexpensive and will cover the expense of replacing furniture, valuables, and other assets in case of loss or damage.
