Riverside Ice & Leisure Centre

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Learner Pool will be closed on Friday 29 April. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes.


Welcome to Riverside Ice and Leisure in Chelmsford. Our superb facilities include two swimming pools, an ice rink, gym, studios and more. With a city centre location, Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre really does put leisure at the heart of the community!


Coming Soon - New Car Park

The building work to convert the outside area at the back of Riverside Ice & Leisure Centre into additional car parking, has now commenced and is due to be completed by early-mid May 2016.


The new car park will provide an additional 70 spaces to help cope with current increasing demand.  The council is continuing to look at the City as a whole to ensure sufficient car parking is available for both residents and visitors to Chelmsford.


All leisure facilities remain open as normal throughout these works. For the latest information on the new Riverside Leisure Centre development please visit www.chelmsford.gov.uk/riversidedevelopment
