Chehaw Park is a great place to take your children and grandchildren. It is well maintained. There is a play ground, a zoo and a bike trail. It also has places to run around and to play sports.

Chehaw is a great place for a family outing. Have a picnic with family and friends, or get a pavilion and have a family reunion. The playground for kids is great. The zoo is fun and relaxing.
