The Rock Sports Park is the proud recipient of the Outstanding Reclamation Award in the non-coal category by the National Association of State Land Reclamations. New York State's reclamation agency nominated The Rock Sports Park for this award in demonstrating that mined land can be very successfully reclaimed and at the same time providing a mineral resource necessary to our nation. An award ceremony was held at the National Association of State Land Reclamations annual conference in Carbondale, IL on 9/14/10.

The Rock Sports Park is named after the stone into which it was chiseled. It was reclaimed from a mine that has long been an eyesore at this entryway to Chester.
