What equipment is at Chelmer Park?

To reach the playgrounds from the large car park you head past the hockey pitches and outdoor gym. Cross over the fields and head towards the hills.

There are two playgrounds. One is a very small, enclosed playground with two individual baby swings and a climbing frame suitable for children up to two.

The larger playground has lots of climbing equipment. It is enclosed and suitable for children up to 8 years old. The playground has interesting climbing frames with monkey bars, interactive play equipment and a slide. There is round swinging equipment.


There is also a slide on one side of the hill and two extremely twisty, orange slides on the other side of the hill. The slides are not suitable for under 5s. Even over 5s should treat with caution, they really throw you around!
