Notes: The ground is situated behind New Abbey Primary School, and is a compact yet tidy little venue. There is a large clubhouse consisting of changing rooms, a referees room and an equipment store. It also has a large 'tea room' facility with space for around 30, that affords a good view of the action on a wet day. There is also a small amount of covered hard standing at the front. A pair of training lights are mounted behind the near goal and the pitch is flanked by a series of white posts used on match days to rope the pitch off. Two large dugouts are at either side and straddle the halfway line. The ground is overlooked by Criffel, to the south, and Sweetheart Abbey, a couple of fields away to the west. A seated area was added in 2019.
