Another soulless out of town stadium. You can park in the park and ride car park near the ground but there are no pubs within easy walking distance of the ground.


Good job our new ground is going to be in Freeman Street and not Peaks Parkway or Great Coates then.  


Although there are not quite as many pubs there as there used to be.



If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.

Do you have to pay for the park and ride area in advance? ūüėé

Didn't 2 seasons ago (and there's nothing to suggest otherwise on their website, so that's where I'll be heading!). It was nowhere near full either, and that was a Saturday afternoon.

According to the OS the Park and Ride isn't avaialble for midweek games as it closes at 9pm. There is a car park at the ground but that needs to be pre-booked.

Quoted Text
Where is the best place to park?

The ground itself has its own carpark but this must be pre-booked with the club: Parking.

The immediate area around the JobServe Community Stadium is under a Parking Exclusion Zone on match days. This covers existing Clearways as well as nearby residential areas.  These are patrolled on match days to please watch out of signs.

There are a number of car parks in the town centre but this is a fair distance away and the Park and Ride is not available for midweek games.

FGG has it as shutting at 2230: https://www.footballgroundguid.....ions-and-car-parking

ūü§Ē

Edit: seeing as the OS info seems to come from the SLO rather than the OS, I best find somewhere else to park!

On the plus side, buying tickets from their website was very easy. Print at home (or at work), job done.
