The Recreation Ground is based in the scenic surrounds of Chorltonville. Given that we are located near to a residential area, it is preferred that fans take public transport to games – or seek adequate parking before reaching the ground. This is due to our limited amount of parking on site (which is largely occupied by players, referees and staff on matchdays), and that the nearby roads are private – and therefore, not available for public parking.
Our address is:
West Didsbury & Chorlton AFC
Getting to the ground by bicycle
The Recreation Ground is a perfect location for those who bike, being located next to the Mersey, Sale Ees and being a few minutes away from the Fallowfield Cycle Loop. We have secure bicycle racks behind the clubhouse to lock up your bike throughout the game – please ask at the bar if you are unable to find them.
Getting to the ground by public transport
The easiest method of public transport to get to Brookburn Road is a tram – to check busses and other methods, visit the Transport for Greater Manchester journey planner here https://my.tfgm.com/#/journeys/
Chorlton has a Metrolink service running right into the heart of Chorlton with stops at Chorlton, St Werghburh’s Road and Barlow Moor Road. The ground is serviced by two Metrolink stops, Chorlton and St Wergburgh’s Road, although the latter is nearer the ground, the former will bring you onto into the centre of Chorlton. From there head down Wilbraham Road towards the world-famous four banks, turn left at the lights down Barlow Moor Road until you reach the Bus Station.
From Barlow Moor Bus Station it’s a simple walk past the disused Police Station down Beech Road until you reach the Trevor Arms pub. From here you arrive at Chorlton green, turn left to walk through the churchyard passing the Bowling Green pub on your left until you reach Brookburn Primary School on your right. Simply turn right after the school onto Brookburn Road and walk to the end of the road to find the ground.
Getting to the ground by car
There is limited parking for 50-60 cars immediately inside the club grounds just outside the pay box entrance. This surfaced in covered by grass, meaning that getting in or out can be difficult in wintery conditions. Please also note that there is NO PARKING on Brookburn Road, local roads or around Chorltonville as they are private, maintained and exclusively for the use of residents.
PLEASE DRIVE SLOWLY ON ENTRY AND DEPARTURE AS THE APPROACH IS A BRIDLE WAY AND PUBLIC FOOTPATH.
There is additional public car parking on Chorlton Ees opposite the Bowling Green pub, who are also allowing supporters to use the pub car park, but there is little other on-street parking.
