There is no social club. The Corrie is located 300 yards down North Street or head back up to The Regal at the crossroads.
The large enclosure down one side and terracing behind one goal and one side are original from the 1920-30's senior side's days. Opposite the covered enclosure is concrete stepped terracing that continues around the south goal side. The north side is more a vehicle track and is rarely used by spectators. There are the usual refreshment facilities.

Armadale Thistle's Volunteer Park once hosted league football, from 1921-32. Back then the club was plainly known as Armadale. The industrial depression of that time - with the collapse of the Lothian collieries and shale oil industries - was the catalyst that saw the end of Armadale's league status.
