Chelsea Estate Heritage Park covers an area of 36.7 hectares and is situated in the heart of Birkenhead on Auckland's North Shore region. The main entrance to the park can be found at Colonial Road in Birkenhead.

There are numerous walking tracks throughout the park which require a reasonable level of fitness.  One of the well formed track follows its way from Colonial Road through Duck Creek Valley and finishes at nearby Chatswood Reserve.
