The Giant Redwood situated beside the River Can in the middle of the town is leaning at quite an angle but those who know the steadfast nature of Sequoias will not be alarmed. In fact the top is starting to resume its vertical growth.

Central Park was previously called Chelmsford Recreation Ground. A lovely walk by the river can be enjoyed through to Admiral's Park but beware of speeding, tumbling cyclists who try to blame you for dangerously walking on the path!
