Overview of Chester

Located just outside of Chesterfield, Chester apartments for rent are within a census-designated place that offers small-town charm within close proximity to big-city amenities. Residents of Chester apartments can easily get to Richmond to enjoy some of the best attractions and outdoor recreation in the state, but it's not necessary to travel that far for some fun. Chester is within minutes of the Chesterfield Children's Theatre, The Playroom, Dutch Gap Canal and the Dodd Park at Point of Rocks. It's no wonder the city has seen a population increase of nearly 20 percent since 2000, according to Sperling's Best Places. Today, roughly 21,000 people call Chester home.
