Explore the Outdoors

Chesterfield is home to some of the region’s best public golf courses so if dad is on-par, be sure to spoil him with a tee time at one these public golf courses!

Chesterfield is home to 67 parks so if dad hits them in the rough, consider planning an outing full of fresh air, views of nature and loads of outdoor fun. Parks like Dutch Gap Conservation Area is known for some of the best birdwatching in Virginia. Offering 4.5 miles of trails, any dad who enjoys the great outdoors will appreciate this beautiful trail! While you’re there, you can visit Henricus Historical Park where you can step back in time through historical interpretation and reenactments to experience what was once Virginia’s western frontier.

Get Dad Out of the Kitchen

If dad needs to stay out of the kitchen (iykyk), check out one of Chesterfield’s forty pickleball courts. Dink responsibly!
