Directions:
From Prestonpans station: head straight through Tranent (LRT service X86 or 26A to get into Tranent). There is an SMT bus into Ormiston from Tranent, I don't know which number, but it will have Pencaitland as the final destination. From Tranent police station, follow the road round the curve and up Ormiston Road. Follow this road for about 2 miles and you will come into Ormiston. Follow the road through the village until you reach the school. The park is now facing you. For car parking, turn right beside the school.

Notes:

This isn't so much of a ground as a local park. Recreation Park is quite open and is surrounded by a mesh fence and a hedgerow. The terracing is nothing more than an extention of the field that surrounds the ground on a few sides, with the hedge and perimeter railing separating it from the playing surface. A covered enclosure was erected by the local council and it is properly terraced. However, it only holds around 40.

Ormiston Primrose (from the East juniors) and East of Scotland side Pencaitland merged in the close season of 1998-1999 to form Pencaitland & Ormiston FC, and the new side elected to play at Ormiston rather than the troublesome pitch at Easter Pencaitland. Another reason for playing at Ormiston is that their ground will be easier to upgrade for Scottish Cup participation (they hope to get in eventually). The club dropped the 'Pencaitland' name to become Ormiston FC in 2002.

As of 2015 there is ongoing work to build a new ground for the club on land adjacent to the current ground.
