Our History

In 2009, NOLCP saved Lower Chester Park from being razed.  We did this to ensure that ice skating, hockey, and other seasonal activities would remain at this historic neighborhood site.

When the survival of an organized hockey program was in jeopardy, we stepped up and invited them to play at our site.

Our Vision

Our vision is for a vibrant four-season park for all in our neighborhood and community.  That would include winter activities, including skating, hockey, and other Winter activities.  The green space would allow for many activities in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.  Lacrosse and soccer being examples.  This green space would also allow for picnics, playing catch, and much much more.

We feel a revitalized park would accomplish many things, a few examples being:

  • Anchoring the neighborhood
  • Bring community members together
  • Engender a sense of neighborhood pride
  • Provide the children of Duluth's hillside with a safe and healthy place to play year-round
  • Foster health and wellness among neighbors 

Lower Chester Park is leased from the City of Duluth and operated by the non-profit organization, Neighbors of Lower Chester Park (NOLCP). NOLCP’s mission is to provide a facility and recreational area for year-round use to members of the Duluth community.

Summer activities that take place include: use of the rink for roller-blading, skate-boarding, basketball, Box Lacrosse, and other games. The flat green area is available for lawn games, potential playground and more! Winter programming includes hockey, recreational skating, and bon-fire parties at night.  The building will also be available for educational and entertainment purposes. Winter Fun at Lower Chester NOLCP is a 501(c)(3) organization and we appreciate your donations!
