By Car

Free car parking is available within the Harrier Way car-park directly in front of the ground.

From Belfast / Antrim – Exit the M2 at the A57 Ballyclare / Templepatrick turn-off. Follow the A57 towards Ballyclare until the Ballyclare turn-off (the Mill Road). At the roundabout take the first exit and take the first exit again at the next roundabout to drive up the main street. Once you get to the one-way system at the town hall, take the first turn left into the Harrier Way car-park, at the Boyle Sports bookmakers shop. 

By Bus

The nearest bus stop to the stadium is Ballyclare Buscentre, which is under a 10-minute walk away. Timetables for all routes that stop at Ballyclare are available on the Translink website. Please note Translink run a Saturday service with different schedules to midweek. To get to Dixon Park, turn right out of the bus stop and walk along the Mill Road towards the Town Centre. Turn left at both roundabouts you come to and walk up the main street. Turn left on to Avondale Drive before you reach all the shops and then take the first right into the Harrier Way car-park. Entrance to the ground is at the far-end of the car-park.
