Chelmsford City Council

Looking after our parks

The recent weather has delayed us cutting grass in the Chelmsford area. Some areas are now longer than we would like and we are working hard to catch up. If the grass in your area is longer than normal, you don’t need to report it, as it will already be on our schedule. However, if we have missed a patch while cutting, you can report it to us.

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.
