Chatham Lake getting cleaned up

Are you a fan of fishing from the bank? Maybe you like to stroll along the waterfront on a peaceful walk or just want a nice spot to sit and enjoy nature and a bit of solitude? If this is you then you need to make your way to Chatham Lake, nestled along Hwy 34, just outside of downtown Chatham.

Thanks to the collaborative effort of the Town of Chatham, the Jackson Parish Recreation Department, and the Jackson Parish Watershed Commission the banks along Chatham Lake are now accessible for all to enjoy! The continuing project that has been ongoing for several weeks has cleared all the trees, limbs, and high grass from the edge of the lake’s inaccessible areas so that the lake can safely be enjoyed even if you don’t own a watercraft.

“I would like to commend the Town of Chatham, the employees, and Mayor Harris, for doing an amazing job with the upkeep of the gateway to Caney Lake. It’s a work in progress as improvements are constantly being made around Chatham Lake so everyone can enjoy its beauty and recreational opportunities. Thanks to Jackson Parish Recreation Board for providing the funding for these projects through cooperative endeavor agreements to make this happen for our citizens.” – Gary Joyner, V\P & Treasure, Jackson parish Watershed District
