Parks in Chelmsford are accessible to all and are a great place to socialise and meet your friends. That’s why you should get out to your local park today and investigate your local park for some wonderful scenery to take a snapshot of.

You can enter the competition via the Chelmsford City Council Facebook post. All you need to do is comment on the post with your three photographs. All entries that meet the criteria will be entered into a prize draw. You’ll be in with more of a chance of winning if you comment with the park where the image was taken. What can you spy on your journey of park discovery?
