    Chester Park/UMD

    Chester Park is a neighborhood in DuluthMinnesota.

    8th Street, Kent Road, and Woodland Avenue are three of the main routes in the community.

    Chester Park also refers to a large park adjacent to the neighborhood, located on East Skyline Parkway. Chester Park straddles both sides of a wooded ravine that contains Chester Creek, one of 28 streams that flow through the city. It is a popular hiking spot. The ravine opens at the top into a wide, wooded, “bowl”-shaped valley known as Chester Bowl and contains a small lift served ski area, ski jumps, pond, soccer field and cross country ski trails.

    The parks ski jumps previously used to train Olympic ski jumpers, were torn down in Aug. 2014 as safety hazards.
