From the free chess for kids that the DSBN provides as extra curricular to students to our Petitioning of Ottawa to proclaim a national "Chess Day", we are scholastic chess in Niagara.
Outdoor Chess tables at the Hannelore Headley
Chess Park in St. Catharines
In 2014, Chess Nation petitioned the City of St. Catharines to dedicate this park with its checkered table tops to our own retired book seller, community activist and chess fan, Hannelore Headley.
An active site for chess during the summer months, it is pictured here with children from the Bishop`s Keep Chess Studio on a day trip.
This beautiful park with a marble water fountain is located across from the Montebello Park Rose Garden in downtown St. Catharines.
Chess sets are available from the UP House, seen in the photo for a ten dollar refundable deposit.
