Chelsea Park is a small public park located in the south west of Sheffield in the suburb of Nether Edge. It is listed as one of the city's Historic Parks,[1] and was originally laid out as the private gardens to Brincliffe Towers in 1852. It was given to the people of Sheffield in 1935 by a former Lord Mayor and Alderman William Styring.

The original small playground from 1966 was replaced, alongside a canopy and basketball area, in 2005.
