Time to ‘Play in the Park’!

Play in the Park will be back from Tuesday 25 July to provide a range of fun sports, games, arts and crafts to the children of Chelmsford for the summer holidays.

Each two-hour long session is led by a team of friendly Playworkers, who are specially trained to ensure that your child can enjoy all of the Play in the Park activities in the safest possible environment. Selected sessions will also feature special ‘extra’ activities, which include parkour, inflatables and even a mobile zoo!

Play in the Park is hugely popular with local parents. Jenny, who visited East Hanningfield with her children at Easter, commented that the session was “Fantastic – Lots of activities for all ages and fun staff!”

There is almost 80 sessions planned throughout the summer holiday, taking place at 17 different parks in and around Chelmsford. So there’s bound to be some which are conveniently located close to you.

The scheme is tailored for children aged three to 11 years, but some sessions will be supported by local children’s centres who can accommodate younger children. Keep an eye online for more details at

You don’t need to book a place but you can register your child’s details with Play in the Park to fast-track registration when you arrive, visit
