What's Riveracre Park  Like?
One of the smaller grounds in the league with fairly basic facilities. Both ends do not have terracing as such, but have flat hard standing areas (although the end does have one step). Both these areas are open to the elements. On one side is a very small covered seated stand, which has a number of supporting pillars running across the front of it. Opposite is a small covered terrace that also sits astride the half way line. Again this stand has a number of supporting pillars. Either sides of these stands are not really used for spectators apart from a path running along the perimeter fence. Behind the Main Stand is a complex of all weather pitches, whilst one end (towards the Social Club) contains the Club dressing rooms.

The Club was originally formed as the works team of the Vauxhall Car Plant in Ellesmere Port, but is now established as its own club.

Where To Drink?

There is a large social club at the ground. Otherwise there is the Astra Pub which is located adjacent to the club entrance. There is also the Chimneys pub which is around three quarters of a mile away from the stadium (see driving directions below).

How To Get There And Where To Park
Leave the M6 at Junction 20a and take the M56 towards North Wales. Leave the M56 at Junction 15 and take the M53 towards Ellemere Port & Birkenhead. Leave the M53 at Junction 5 and take the first exit onto the A41 towards Chester. At the first set of traffic lights turn left at the Chimneys Pub. Continue to the bottom of this road until you reach a T junction where you turn left. At the next T junction turn right and the entrance to the ground is down on the right just past the Astra Bar. There is a good sized car park at the stadium.

By Train

Hooton station is situated a mile and half away from the ground. It is served by trains from Chester and Liverpool Lime Street. Although you could walk from the station to the ground (albeit a fairly long one taking 30-35 minutes), a fair part of the route is down country lanes where there is no pedestrian footpath, so I would advise taking a taxi instead.

Remember if travelling by train then you can normally save on the cost of fares by booking in advance. Visit the thetrainline website to see how much you can save.
