Our Impressions of East End Park

East End Road is a 'tidy' ground, and has some old and some new stands. The players facilities are rumoured to be one of the best in the SPL, with the exception of the old firms' but as far as spectators go it is one of the middle of the road grounds.

The away fans usually sit in the East Stand behind the goals, although sometimes (Old Firm visits, or when a team brings an unusually large visiting support) the North-East stand will be opened. The view from the stand behind the goal is fine, and there is a decent catering outlet in the concourse (try the Steak Bridies!). The toilets are clean and the PA is audible, which is more than can be said for other SPL grounds.

The North East stand is actually the eastern half of the North Stand, which itself is a converted terrace. Luckily, the Pars didn't just bolt on bucket seats to every second row, they put new seating blocks in. This means the angle of seating is reasonable so you shouldn't have to stand. Be warned though, there are plenty of pillars supporting the roof. A small section of the South (Main) Stand might also be available, which offer a high-level view, with only minimal obstructions from pillars.

Directions to East End Park

By Road

From North and South

Dunfermline can be reached from the north and south via the M90 motorway. Exit at Junction 3 and head for the town. A right turn at the roundabout at Lauder Technical College, will take you onto Halbeath Road. The ground is easy to find from here - just keep going. You will pass an Asda superstore on your right and a Kwik-Fit garage, a little further on, on the left. After approx 2 miles, you will come to the ground.

From West

Follow the signs for Kincardine Bridge. About half a mile after crossing the Kincardine Bridge you will come to a roundabout in the village of Kincardine. Take the sign to Dunfermline on the A985 for 7 miles and finally the A994 (after another roundabout). You will pass through the villages of Cairneyhill and Crossford, Just keep going on this road into Dunfermline. You pass through several sets of traffic lights and a fire station (on the left hand side). Keep going straight ahead until you come to short stretch of dual carriageway. This ends at a large roundabout, by which time you should be able to see the ground. Go straight ahead along Appin Crescent, into Halbeath Road.

By Bus

To get to the ground from the bus station you should cut through James Street, which runs diagonally from the taxi rank at the bus station to the East Port (opposite the Carnegie Hall). You will be able to see the ground from here.

By Train

Dunfermline now has 2 rail stations. The first you call at (at least coming from Edinburgh and Inverkeithing) is Dunfermline Town. This is the station at the bottom end of the town. Upon leaving the train, walk up the hill through the park and you will (eventually) see the floodlights. It's about a 10-15 minute walk, but you will be at the home end of the ground. If you get off the train at the next station, Dunfermline Queen Margaret, you will be at the away end of the gound and have the added advantage of not having to hike up the hill! It is also about a 10 minute walk. Above data supplied by Stuart on 31/122003

Car Parking


There is an official Car/Coach Park at the east end (away end) of the ground.

If you are parking on side streets around East End Park, there are the odd cones out to restrict you and the road is not closed to supporters as they leave after the game so you might have to fight your way through pedestrians to get back to the motorway.
Alternatively, you may wish to park in the town centre, which has plenty of shops, cafes and pubs. The ground is a short walk away.
