Chellaston Park is set in 5 hectares of open space and is located south east of the city centre, adjacent to the city boundary.
This open space was originally farmland which was transferred to the Council as part of a planning agreement in 1994. The open space was designed and laid out for both formal and informal recreation in 1995 and includes play area, sports facilities and a sports pavilion.
Since 2017 Chellaston Leisure Limited (CLL) have managed the sports pavilion. CLL have also managed in partnership with Derby Parks Team, the sports facilities on the park which include football, 3G pitch and cricket provision. CLL is a not for profit organisation run by local volunteers who aim to improve the park facilities for use by the local community.
As well as sports, the park is used for walking and is popular with dog owners, with a circular footpath route around the perimeter of the open space and distant views over Derby that can be enjoyed along the northern boundary.
