As part of the works, we have now closed the Waterloo Lane 3 car park.
Parking for Monthly Members
If you are a Monthly Member, you can also use our Meadows Retail multi-storey car park (behind Iceland and only a five-minute walk away).
If you are using the multi-storey car park, you will need to use your existing pink pass. This will allow you to park for up to three hours for free. If you park for longer than three hours, we will charge you.
You can view more details on the current parking arrangements for monthly members.
If you do not have a pink pass, you need to enquire at reception.
After the centre reopens on 10 June, we will provide two car parks at:
- the Riverside main car park (located next to the new centre)
- the ice rink undercroft car park
You can access them via Victoria Road and both will be for Riverside customers only.
If you are an OurChelmsford Plus card holder, you can claim a refund for your first hour of parking. You need to claim at the Riverside main reception when paying for your leisure activity, by presenting the refund part of your car parking ticket.
After 10 June, you will no longer be able to park in the Waterloo Lane car parks when using the centre.
At peak times, we will reserve the undercroft car park for monthly members only, using an access barrier.
If you have a valid membership card, you can scan it to gain entry or to exit. You can only stay for up to three hours when using the centre.
You need to display a Leisure Centre parking permit in your windscreen at all times, otherwise we will issue a parking fine.
