"A Great Lower League Day Out"

has rated Home Park 3.5 out of 5.

henryburridge's review of Home Park

Home Park really is a mix of the old and the new; on one side you have the old grandstand which, while looking rather tatty, harks back to the old style of stadia. Unfortunately the terraced area at the front isn't used anymore, leaving a rather sad feeling throughout the match.

The other three sides are your typical modern bowl seats, fairly bland, but at the end of the day the facilities are decent and match up to most of the recently built Football League grounds.

Location

The ground is situated on the edge of Central Park, so the surroundings are very picturesque. The train station is at the far end of said park so fans get a scenic walk on their way to the Home Park.

The closest pub is the Brittania Inn while Mutley Plain, a ten minute walk away, has a wide range of pubs and bars to choose from.

View

Fans who find themselves in the three modern stands will find themselves with a great view of the action. The seats are the standard affair with reasonable leg room in front of them and, while not entirely comfortable, are suitable enough for a few hours of sitting at the game.

There are no pillars to obstruct your view here, though the grandstand is a totally different matter. It is a classic old stand and, as such, has wooden seating in the main section, there are a few rows of plastic seats below which look rather out of place. With the unused terracing in front fans are away from the action, though the height of the stand makes for a reasonable view of the pitch.

Food & Drink

As can be expected at any Football League ground, the food is expensive. The burgers are of a poor quality, though they are of a decent size, while the pasties are surprisingly small for a club so close to their home.

Chocolate and crisps are the usual but there is a small selection of beer and cider available from the food outlets in the concourses.

Atmosphere

The home fans can create a real din from the Devonport End, where the sound reverberates well around the stands, the windshield at the end helping to keep the noise in.

The away fans have the exact same facilities and a good travelling bunch can make a good atmosphere. One quarter of the ground, between the away end and the stand along the side, is unused, so there is not the opportunity for banter between opposing supporters.

The local people are friendly and welcoming, away fans are free to mingle with the 'Green Army' and the day out is a one of the best in the lower leagues.
