A WALK IN THE PARK FROM WATERHOUSE BUSINESS CENTRE

Chelmsford  will shine a light on Olympic celebrations on Saturday 07 July 2012    joining other dynamic urban areas to welcome the Olympic Torch Relay through the city. The London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay continues its 8,000-mile journey across the UK and is passing through Chelmsford to celebrate the excitement of the Games.

Why not get the kids up early park at Waterhouse a bit earlier than every other day – starts at 6.30am - and wander down to town through the park

If you want to get a great view of the Torch without the stress of navigating the town car parks don’t forget to use the FREE car park at Waterhouse Business Centre and make the most of a healthy early morning walk through the park. Take in the sights and sounds of Marconi Ponds and enjoy the beauty of this peaceful walk into town.

Marconi Ponds is an area of natural beauty and interest for recreation and wildlife in the centre of Chelmsford. The Nature Reserve comprises a footpath through a beautiful area of wooded land and the ponds. Take in the walkways and cycle park of Marconi a  perfect area for wildlife, with Kingfishers and Herons already present, and other wildlife returning. 

The map on display in the centre on our Notice Board, shows the easy 10-15min walk from the centre into town.
