Other Info:
In June 2000 it was announced that a 2.2 million Sport England Lottery Fund application for an indoor centre with a 6 lane 60m straight, facilities for throws and jumps, full changing facilities and a 200 seater stand for the outdoor track of the Melbourne Park Athletics Centre has been successful. The official turf cutting ceremony was held on 24th October 2001 and the indoor track was first open to Chelmsford AC members on 16th July 2002. The track is run by Chelmsford Borough Council.
