Melbourne Park

Melbourne Park has some 21.18 Hectares of available space to enjoy. It has a variety of formal grass sports pitches and a selection of outdoor hard surface court areas, for those interested in tennis, netball and basketball. There is also a baseball diamond, a 3G floodlit artificial grass pitch and athletics throwing area.

For the younger visitor, there are two well-equipped children’s play areas and a wood to play in.

College Wood is a remnant of ancient woodland (4.5 Hectares). A little-known but interesting fact is that at one time, the wood was used by Henry VIII and stocked with game for him to hunt. The wood is now listed as designated ancient woodland.

Melbourne Park also plays host to Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre, Chelmsford Athletics Club and Chelmsford City Football Club, so there are top facilities here to use.
