Marconi Evolution benefits from its own state-of-the-art gym, but residents can also take advantage of the facilities offered by Chelmsford’s many leisure centres and private health clubs. For outdoor sports, the city benefits from 22 public parks, offering opportunities for jogging and walking, as well as access to tennis courts, football and cricket pitches, rugby and athletics.
The green space continues all around Chelmsford, with beautiful countryside to explore, traditional Essex pubs to discover and charming restaurants to visit.
