Chelmsford City Council

Looking after our parks

All our parks are open. Toilets in the parks are also open and cafés are open for take away. We have also opened play areas and outdoor gyms. Our volunteering activities remain suspended. You can read more on our coronavirus page.

We are responsible for maintaining the parks and green spaces that we own.

This includes:

  • cutting the grass
  • planting and tending to flowerbeds
  • trimming hedges, bushes and trees
  • dealing with anything that's unsafe
  • emptying the bins and picking up litter
  • maintaining all park facilities (including toilets), play areas and sports equipment
  • marking out sports pitches
  • treating wasp nests
  • locking and unlocking the park gates

We also maintain:

  • the flowerbeds and plants in the city centre
  • any grassy or planted roundabouts in the Chelmsford area


Report a problem

If you notice a problem in one of our parks, or think we have missed something during our routine maintenance, you can make a report.


Other parks in the Chelmsford area

We do not own all of the parks and green spaces in the Chelmsford area. You can look at Essex County Council's Visit Parks for more information about the parks that we do not own.
