Chalfont Borough Local Government 101

This family friendly event, hosted by our Borough Manager, will cover how our Borough government works, the laws that we have to follow, procedures, and generally try to help people understand why and how we do things.

This event is for residents of Chalfont Borough. While residents of the Township and surrounding areas are welcome to attend, the information discussed may not apply to your residence because Borough code is different from Township code, etc.

Forest Park was an amusement  park located on over 140 acres in Chalfont. It closed in 1968 after over 80 years of operation. The park was a major attraction in the area featuring rides, a swimming pool, string bands and other events. It was a popular venue for company picnics having hosted thousands of employees of the Budd Company.  John Malack is the founder and chairman of the ‘Friends of Forest Park’ organization having served in that capacity for over 30 years.
