Chestnut Ridge Park is a 1,213-acre (4.91 km2) park in Orchard Park, New York, originally named for the chestnut trees on its hills. The park is open year-round and offers tennis, hiking, snowmobiling, and sledding among other activities. A tower facility is also on the premises for firefighter training. During the summer, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra plays at the base of the sled hill, providing an amphitheatre like setting. On a clear day, the sled hill offers views of Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and Toronto. The Eternal Flame Falls, a small waterfall is located at the park. It is the largest county park in the United States. However, this claim is disputed. Sprague Brook Park, operated by Erie County is less than 15 miles away. It is nearly twice the size at 2200 acres.
