|What's Park Hall Stadium Like?|
Park Hall is situated around one and
half miles north east of the English town of
Oswestry, and a similar distance south of the small
town of Gobowen. To be
honest, if feels like it is in the middle of
However the stadium has been improved recently with the opening in 2012 of a new
semi-permanent structure at the East
End. This covered all seated stand has a capacity of 500. Currently it only runs for half the width of the
pitch ending just behind
the goal, but it is hoped that at

narrow open flat standing area behind the goal. This
side of the ground currently lacks covered
accommodation, with away supporters able to use the
toilets and refreshment facilities of The Venue side
of the stadium.
|Where To Drink?|
There is a bar at the ground, however due to its rather sheltered setting there is no pubs, bars or restaurants in the surrounding area of the ground. If you are walking to Park Lane from Gobowen railway station there is very also little on offer before you set off for the ground but far more on offer in Oswestry town centre, 30 minutes walk from the ground.
