|What's The Ground Like?|
The ground is predominantly terracing, with terraces behind each goal and along one side of the pitch. The terraces at each end of the ground are not covered and are open to the elements. At one end is the small East Terrace, whilst opposite is the larger West Terrace. The latter is unusual in being taller on one side than the other. On one side of the ground is the Main Stand, which is a traditional looking covered, seated stand. The seating is raised above pitch level and there are a number of supporting pillars at its front. This stand only runs for around half the length of the pitch. The team dugouts are located in front of this stand. On the other side, is a small covered terrace that runs the full length of the pitch. This stand looks relatively new and has a number of small floodlights protruding from its roof. There is a quite a slope to the pitch that runs down across the ground from the West Terrace down to the East Terrace.
|What Is It Like For Visiting Supporters?|
|Normally segregation of supporters is not in force, so most away fans tend to head for the covered South Terrace. If segregation takes place, then the open West Terrace is allocated to away supporters plus part of the Main Stand. The facilities are fairly basic around the ground, but as you would expect the bridies are pretty good!|
|Where To Eat & Drink?|
|Dave Mair informs me; 'There is the Plough Inn on Market Street which is listed in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide. It is only a short walk away from Station Park.' There are also a number of bakeries in the area selling the legendary Forfar Bridies.|
|How To Get There By Car & Where To Park|
The ground is located
right on the outskirts of town. In fact the Main
Stand, backs onto fields. From the A90 take the A926
towards Forfar. At the T Junction turn right into
Brechin Road, then turn left into Market Street and
then 2nd left into Carseview Road for the ground.
There is only limited parking available at the
ground, otherwise there is the nearby Muir Street
car park or street parking.
the ground is called Station Park, there is in fact no
railway station in Forfar itself. The nearest stations
are in Dundee or Arbroath, that are both around 14
John Aitken from the Wanderers Way Annual adds; 'From Dundee Seagate bus station (which is five minutes walk away from Dundee Train Station) get the Number 20 bus to Forfar (the Royal Bank of Scotland stop on East High Street). From there walk up the hill till you get to crossroad at the end of East High Street take a left down North Street. Continue straight along this road (passing the North Street Fish & Chip shop on the right), which leads into Carseview Road and the ground is further up on the left.'
