In the early 1960's a group of people in Henrico County's west end decided that there was a need for a place for families to gather and have a fun recreation-filled day swimming in a clean, clear pool, or playing tennis with other family members or friends, and just having good outdoor fun.  Those individuals took it upon themselves to gather together more like-minded people, enlist many helping hands, and secure much-needed funds, and together they formed the Chestnut Oaks Association. 


Incorporated in September of 1963, the Chestnut Oaks Association proceeded to purchase land at the corner of Parham and Fordson Roads, the same land which we still occupy.  A pool was built, and the fun began.  A kiddie pool, tennis courts, children's play area, blacktop with hoop, tennis practice area, and covered pavilion for parties and picnics were added over the years.  The Chestnut Oaks Stingrays Swim Team currently swims in Division I of the Greater Richmond Aquatic League.  Chestnut Oaks Association is still our legal name, but Chestnut Oaks Recreation Association is our commonly used name, and the word recreation really is what we are all about. 


We offer one of the best neighborhood pool and tennis membership values in the suburban Richmond area. If you are not currently a Chestnut Oaks member, please visit our Membership pages, and consider the recreational value that we can offer to YOUR family! We'd love to have your family become a part of ours!
