What's The CNG Stadium Like?
A largely open ground which is surrounded by a lot of greenery giving an overall pleasant look. On one side is the newish looking Main Stand. This covered seated stand comprises six rows of seating and runs for around half the length of the pitch. The view is good from this area as there are no supporting pillars or floodlight pylons to hinder your view. On one side of this stand is an even smaller seated stand, which is used to house Directors and Sponsors, whilst the other side has a flat standing area. Opposite is a small covered terrace that has a row of three floodlight pylons situated in front of it. At the Hospital End of the ground, a new covered terrace was opened in 2014. Although it has developed that area of the stadium, the terrace itself, although being practical, isn't the most attractive of stands. At the other end there are a couple of buildings that house the club shop and team dressing rooms. In front of these buildings there is a single step of terracing, which is covered by a small extended roof attached. In addition there is also a small tarmac flat standing area at this end for spectators to stand on by the perimeter fence. Unusually the teams enter the playing area from this end.

How To Get There And Where To Park
Leave the A1(M) at Junction 47 and take the A59 towards Knaresborough. Then take the A658 towards Bradford/Harrogate. At the second roundabout turn right onto the A661 towards Harrogate. You will pass a Sainsburys and then after the lights with the Woodlands pub on one corner, then the entrance to the ground is a just a bit further down on the right.
There is small car park at the ground (cost £1), behind one end of the ground. This may seem a convenient spot to park your car, but then you just spend the match watching to see if you car gets hit by a wayward shot! Otherwise there is a pay and display car park at the adjacent hospital. Please be aware that there is a residents only parking scheme in operation on roads close to the ground.

By Train

Although there are two local stations near to the ground; Hornbeam Park Station (for Leeds) and Starbeck (for York) you are more likely to end up at Harrogate station itself, which is just over a mile away from the ground. It is served by trains from Leeds and York.

Adam Hodson a visiting Stockport County fan adds; 'The following Bus Services; 770, 771 and X70 all run from Harrogate Town Centre along Wetherby Road, passing the ground. You can catch them from Stand 9 of Harrogate Bus Station in the Town Centre. From the Railway Station, turn right out of the main entrance and the Bus Station is a short walk down on the right. The Bus journey time to the ground, is no more than ten minutes'.
