Who We are & What We do

      The Chatham Square Neighborhood Association (CSNA) takes its name from the beautiful park located just blocks away from the scenic Quinnipiac River in the historic Fair Haven section of New Haven, CT. We are an all-volunteer group of residents and business people creating and sustaining community and pride in our neighborhood. Made up of residents of all ages, races, and ethnicities CSNA covers the area of Fair Haven bordered by Grand Avenue, Ferry Street, Middletown Avenue, and Front Street. Over time, our volunteers have also come from other areas of Fair Haven and adjacent neighborhoods.

     Together, we work to enrich the neighborhood by offering activities for children, organizing social gatherings, supporting local businesses and addressing comm-unity concerns. You can join us by attending any of the events listed below. You are also welcome to sign up to get notices of upcoming activities, just register on this website. If you have questions you can reach us at: ChathamSquareNeighborhood at
