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.
The park is used for walking and is popular with dog owners. There's a circular footpath route around the perimeter of the open space where distant views over Derby can be enjoyed along the northern boundary.
