Melbourne Park is a popular park, specialising in sporting activities within North West Chelmsford and is home to Chelmsford Sport and Athletic Stadium. The main entrance point is on Salerno Way, just off Melbourne Road. The park has a number of football pitches, a baseball diamond, and two hard surface courts for tennis, netball and basketball.

 

For the younger visitor there are two well equipped play areas and an established wood to explore. It’s thought that the site of College Wood (4.5 hectares) was once part of ancient woodland. Today the wood has coppiced Hornbeam, Ash, and English Oak and is a popular spot for dog walkers and families.  During the springtime the woodland floor is sprinkled with bright yellow aconites and primroses.

 

There is a large car park with blue badge bays and toilets.
