Timber Town Park

Tinbertown Park is located off Sibley Rd, about 1/2 mile from downtown Chelsea. Built in 1996 and renovated in June 2007, the park features a huge 12,000 square foot wooden climbing structure, swings, bridges, towers, slides, sandboxes, climbing wall, small spray zone, and much more! Timber Town serves as a community attraction for families in Chelsea and throughout Michigan.

In addition, Timbertown features a big pavilion, a very large mowed grass area which is excellent for frisbee, soccer or other games you’d like to play, and is the home of beautiful mosaic community project, Pathway to Renewal.

Veteran’s Memorial Park

Veterans Park is located at the corner of Main St. (M-52) and Sibley Rd. It was constructed in 1955 and rededicated in 2009. A large black marble memorial is a tribute to those who have served in our armed forces both in peace time and during armed conflicts. The park is also referred to as “Boat Park” because of its large wooden ship play structure. The park also features picnic tables, ball fields and is adjacent to a small stream.

Pierce Park

Pierce Park is located on S. Main St, near the Chelsea Community Hospital Main entrance. Pierce Park is often  referred to as “the park with the big rock” (which is painted by locals for birthdays and other occasions). The park features a play structure, picnic tables, a pavilion, and plenty of room to run around and play. Visitors often enjoy playing and relaxing at the park, and then walking over to Twisters Ice Cream for a snack.
