Athletic Fields & Parks

Chelsea boasts 40 beautiful parks & playgrounds within 2.2 square miles of land. Spread throughout 8 districts are various municipal and state parks waiting to be explored and enjoyed. The City also uses local public schools' state-of-the-art facilities during Chelsea Recreation hours to support the work of many local organizations that benefit Chelsea residents.

There are 17 playgrounds throughout Chelsea, ranging from neighborhood “Tot Lots” to larger parks that include jungle gyms, rock climbing structures, and swings. These parks are primarily geared toward children ages 2-12 and their hours of operation are from dawn until dusk. Adult supervision of children is encouraged.

Parks are open from dawn until dusk.  Permits for use of athletic fields and courts are issued from mid-April until mid-October.
Organized events at playgrounds and tot lots require a permit. Call (617) 466-4070 for more information or apply to reserve an athletic field.
Chelsea parks & athletic fields are managed municipally, by the state, or by the school.
