Hidden behind the Chelmsford Museum in Oaklands Park (if it is possible to hide them!) are three Giant Redwoods. Although one of them is still quite young, probably not more than twenty years old, so less easy to spot. They can all be found near to the children's play area. The gardens are nice and there is a large old cannon on one of the lawns.
