Arbour Park: Getting to the ground
Written by Slough Town Football Club
Information and advice for supporters about getting to Arbour Park.
So you’ve secured the historic ticket, the weather forecast is currently looking good and all you need to think about now is how to get to the ground on Monday 29th August.
The turnstiles will open at 13:30 and inside the ground refreshments and food will be available. Unfortunately there will be no parking available at Arbour Park on match day and off street parking is extremely limited. We are anticipating a larger than normal attendance and would therefore advise you to allow plenty of time to get to the ground.
The ground is conveniently situated approximately half a mile from the train and bus station where plenty of car parking can also be found. Click the link for more information. It takes approximately 15-20 minutes to walk from the station and the car parks.
Bus and taxis
Alternatively you could hop on a bus (Bus Routes 2 and 5). Go up Stoke Road and alight at Elliman Avenue. Buses are operated by First Group - or of course taxis are available from the station.
For those of you who wish to cycle, a cycle map of the borough is available from Slough Borough Council and the ground does have cycle racks. Alternatively at Slough Station (Brunel Way) secure indoor bike storage is available – the first month is free and then 50p per day thereafter (only charged on days used) – to find out more visit Cycle Hub Slough.
If you don’t want to use your own bike, Cycle Hire Slough is available at nine sites across the borough and the nearest docking station is at Slough Station (Brunel Way).
Rail and bus
For those of you who travel by train, PlusBus is available as an add-on rail ticket and for £3 per day offers unlimited bus travel on that day. These are available from ticket offices, machines and online.
Whilst there is no parking at the ground on Monday, if you are a disabled (blue) badge holder there are designated parking spaces at Arbour Park. There are limited numbers of allocated spaces and therefore you need to contact the club to reserve a parking space in advance by emailing email@example.com.
We look forward to welcoming you at the new home of Slough Town FC and let’s hope we can get off to winning ways!
