Chess and Checkers

The Chess and Checkers House is in close proximity to the Dairy. It is placed on a large rock outcropping known as the Kinderberg.
It was created in 1952 with a donation by Bernard Baruch – a popular philanthropist.

The brick structure has tables both inside and out and is popular with both young and old.
Players can take pieces from park staff or bring their own.
You can borrow not only chess but also backgammon and domino.
It is well-suited for players of all statuses – from rookies to seasoned veterans.

The pergola surrounding it was erected in 1986 by the Conservancy to provide shade for the players.
