|What's East End Park Like?|
overall look of the ground has greatly improved with
the re-development of both ends of the ground. The
Norrie McCathie & East Stands at each end of the
ground, are very similar in design and were opened
in 1998. Both are covered single tiered stands, that
are quite steep in appearance. On one side of the
ground is the two tiered South (Main) Stand, which
is a classic looking football stand built in the
early 1960's and is of a good size. On the other
side is the smaller North Stand, which is single
tiered and covered.
|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
|Away fans are normally
housed in the East Stand at one end of the ground,
where just over 3,000 fans can be accommodated. The
facilities in this stand are good and the view of the
playing action excellent. If demand requires it, then
parts of the North & South (Main) Stand can also
be allocated for a total of 6,783, which is the
allocation for Old Firm games. Other visitors get a
maximum of 4,400 seats. There is normally a good
atmosphere generated within the ground.
One point of interest is that the winner of the half time lottery is presented with the relevant amount of cash on the pitch. Lets just hope that they don't get mugged on the way home!
|Where To Drink?|
|Jim Francis recommends the Elizabethan, near to the ground on Halbeath Road, for away supporters to drink in. Otherwise the ground is around 10-15 minutes walk away from the town centre where there are plenty of pubs to be found.|
|How To Get There By Car & Where To Park|
From North & South :
|There are two stations that are each about a 15 minute walk away from the ground, or about £4 in a taxi. These are Dunfermline Queen Margaret & Dunfermline Town. Both are served by trains from Edinburgh and the latter as the name suggests is closer to the town centre.|
Falkirk, Raith Rovers,
Cowdenbeath and East Fife.
