The Wason Pond Conservation and Recreation Area in Chester is a multi-use park ideal for family outing. The park contains a covered bridge, several swimming holes, a community center, a short trail, a playground and a large field where you may find charity yard sales occasionally during the summer.
The best access to the covered bridge and trail is from the Community Center parking area.
The trail suitable for mountain bikes and hikers leads to a swimming hole with a Tarzan swing. Take note of the flora along the trail.
Next to the center in the opposite direction is a large playground for the little ones.
Further on is the second entrance to the park and another parking area with the main swimming area.
If in the Raymond/Chester area be sure to spend a nice afternoon at the park.
