214 Main Street, Chatham, NJ- located in the back of the library.Â Great playground for toddlers. The kids had a great time, plenty of playground equipment adjacent to a fenced in pool (for town residents).Â Really nice people were there this past Sunday.Â I really enjoy Chatham parks.Â Partially fenced, and there is a basketball court and ballfield there too.
