Currently the Chelsea Waterside Play Area is closed for construction.  Come back soon for more information.

This colorful playground creates an extraordinary space with award winning equipment, water features and sand areas.

The equipment is manufactured by Kompan, a Danish company that specializes in the creation of unique play environments. The theme of the Chelsea Waterside playground’s “Galaxy Class” equipment is “access for all” − referring to the fact that every activity offers access from the ground − permitting children of many different ages and abilities to participate. Children can climb, spin, rock and experiment in unique ways with the various pieces while parents and caregivers relax under the playful shade umbrellas.
