Park set to open this summer at former oil farm in Chelsea

This summer, local residents will be able to picnic, play, and savor the views along Chelsea Creek once marred by a field of oil tanks, as a result of an agreement between Chelsea and a road-salt storage company.

Eastern Minerals is constructing a new park on part of the former Coastal Oil property along Chelsea Creek, adjacent to the company’s salt storage facility on Marginal Street. The project is part of a deal with the city that enabled Eastern to use another portion of the former Coastal site to store a second salt pile.
