Chatham-Kent Historic Downtown Chatham
on the Thames River
You can feel the warmth and charm of this downtown area as you cross Third Street bridge and turn down tree lined King St. along the Thames River. The Capital Theatre which originally opened as a movie theatre in the 1930's has been completely restored and presents top notch entertainment. Across the street is Mama Marie's Italian restaurant, a later addition to downtown but a great place to gather with friends before or after a performance at the Capital. There is even an old fashioned Candy Store next door. On the next block you will see the former Centre Theatre now renovated and a local night club for dancing.It even has a patio along the water.
There have been many buildings restored along King St. but there has been no new construction for 30 years thus maintaining it's old fashioned charm. The 'Boardwalk On The Thames' Condo Development in the centre of town will be the first new construction to take place. The Waterfront Project is much anticipated and will be a real plus for Chatham.The 12 Storey Development includes Retail Space on the ground floor, and 94 Condo units. Work is in progress but no completion date has been announced.
Shopping is a must and the Boutiques, Jewellery Stores and Various Shops on King St.are full of treasures. The end of King St. is the site of the Retro Suites, a Boutique Hotel with period rooms to delight any fancy.Tecumseh Park just across the footbridge at the Cenataph is the site for many Festivals and Events in Downtown Chatham such as the Retrofest in May and Ribfest in July. Concerts take place every Wednesday in the summer months at the bandshell in Tecumseh park and are well attended by the residents of this community. Come visit and enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants, a shopping adventure or just a relaxing afternoon at one of the outdoor cafe's and enjoy the sites.You will surely want to stay and explore Chatham-Kent.
