Looking for something to do in Chardon before or after dance class? We’ve got you! Check out our guide to Chardon – named after Peter Chardon Brooks, who donated land to build the historic Chardon Square – below.
However, you choose to spend your time, a memorable morning or afternoon is guaranteed.
Get wet: Pioneer Waterland and Dry Fun Park
Make a splash at Pioneer Waterland and Dry Fun Park which is split into several zones: Water Fun Land, Kidsland, and Sportsland. You’ll also find picnic tables and 5×5 cement grills throughout the park for your use. This Chardon family favorite is open until 11 am-7 pm on weekdays and from 11 am-8 pm at weekends.
Take a hike: Maple Highlands Biking and Walking Trail
The scenic 20-mile Maple Highlands Trail is ideal for walking, biking, running, cross country skiing, and more. Opportunities abound to spot Wild Turkeys and White-tail Deer, as well as turtles and snakes crossing the trail. While there are no facilities on the trail, there are plenty of surrounding parks providing restrooms and reservable picnic areas.
To market, to market: Sage’s Apples
If there’s anything more wholesome than visiting a farmers’ market, then we’re yet to discover it. Swap your supermarket shop for a leisurely morning or afternoon wandering the varied stalls – despite the name, Chardon’s Sage’s Apples sell more than just apples! Browse local produce like handmade preserves and fresh seasonal fruit. De-lish.
Tee time: Chip’s Miniature Golf
There’s fun for the whole family at Chip’s Miniature Golf in Chardon which opened back in 2008. Expect an 18-hole course set against a backdrop of trees, ponds, streams, and a waterfall. The course is open from April through October.
