Discover your local green spaces

All Chelmsford parks and green spaces are unique and bring their own character. Many are situated along the three Chelmsford rivers: Wid, Chelmer and Can, providing picturesque backgrounds to the city’s beautiful open spaces.

The Chelmsford parks are important community assets, offering clean and green recreational spaces for residents and visitors to enjoy.

The activities and uses are wide-ranging; from dog walking, cycling, children’s play, outdoor sport, events, and more. Chelmsford’s green spaces create perfect environments for activities to easily take place alongside each other and be enjoyed by all in a respectful and safe way.

Parks and green spaces are also the home of local wildlife and natural habitats, deserving of our protection and enhancement.

We hope you enjoy your visits to one of the City Council’s many “Green Flagged” parks and recreation grounds.
