Chamber of Commerce is next door to Art Gallary and across the street from the parking for the Safari Museum. It is a good spot to get local information. Chamber of Commerce is in a brick building on corner of street.
The railroad right of way runs one block paralell to the main street. The old railroad right of way is being turned into a linear park with bicycle trail. Look for it behind the Safari Museum.
Chanute has some nice parks. This is Highland Park. Highland Park is easy to find. It is under the water tower.
