One of the most fun traditions occurs every Memorial Day when the kids in the neighborhood decorate their bikes and have a bike parade from the monument to the pool, led by the Chesterfield Fire Department, to celebrate the opening day of the Chesterfield Family Aquatic Center.

Neighborhood Notes

Mark Gellman, The Gellman Team, Coldwell Banker Premier

Chesterfield is a warm and welcoming municipality, offering a fantastic mix of shopping, dining, entertainment, parks, athletic teams and high-rated schools. There are homes and condominiums that range from very affordable to ultra-luxurious. The progressiveness of Chesterfield can be seen in the new developments, including town center, with walking paths, Riparian Trail and Chesterfield Amphitheatre. The location is excellent, with convenience to interstates 40 and 270. It is a great place to call home for out-of-towners or locals.
