Maesdu Park is largely an open ground, with just a few small basic stands in place. However the openness allows it to have a picturesque look on two sides, where it is overlooked by a couple of headlands. Spectators enter the ground at the Clubhouse End. This end of the ground is filled with a number of white coloured buildings that house the Clubhouse, changing rooms and Club offices. In front of these is a large flat standing area. Opposite is the Centenary Stand, which is a small covered stand, that looks quite new. It is situated directly behind the goal and runs for around half the width of the pitch. It has a mixture of covered seating and standing areas. On the North side of Maesdu Park, is the largest of the stands, which is the Main Stand. Running from the half way line down to the Centenary End, this covered all seated stand, has only four rows of seats, but at least it free from any supporting pillars. However directly next to it is the base of a large ugly looking telephone mast, that could impair the views of spectators, trying to see the action at one corner of the ground. On the other side of this mast is an unusual looking two storey brick building that houses the stadium announcer and has an executive area.
Opposite on the remaining side the team dugouts are situated on either side of the halfway line. Above the dugouts is a scaffolded raised platform that serves as a television gantry. Towards the Clubhouse End there is a small all seated covered stand, called the MBi Stand, whilst the other side has a portakabin type structure that also serves as an Executive area, with seating out front. Maesdu Park has an artificial 3G playing surface.
In 2015 the stadium was renamed Park MBi Maesdu in a corporate sponsorship deal.
Segregation of supporters is a rarity at Maesdu Park, which says a lot about the friendliness of the Club. As Llandudno is sandwiched between two large headlands, then this makes for a great backdrop to the ground on a fine day. Considering that you can also do this with a pint in your hand, as the Club allow drinks to be brought out of the Clubhouse, then the views get a lot more enjoyable. The Clubhouse itself is quite smart inside having been recently refurbished and offers a range of hot and cold food. Which makes up for the limited menu inside the ground of Sandwiches (£2) and Sausage Rolls (£1.50). There is also a small club shop located inside the ground by the entrance turnstiles.
There is the Crossbar Clubhouse at the ground itself which welcomes visiting supporters. This bar has a number of screens showing BT and Sky Sports. Otherwise there don't seem to be any other pubs located close to the ground. However it is only a 15 minute walk to the town centre, where there are plenty of pubs. There is a Wetherspoons pub called the Paladium, in Glodaeth Street, which used to be an old theatre. Opposite Llandudno Railway Station is the Nevill pub which also has the benefit of having BT and Sky Sports.
From the A55 North Wales Expressway that runs along the North Coast of Wales, take the A470 towards Llandudno. Go straight across four roundabouts and at the fifth (with the Links Hotel and pub on the left hand corner) take the first exit into Maesdu Road. After passing the John Bright School on your right, take the right hand turn into Builders Road West (signposted Industrial Estate/Parking Coaches). The entrance to the ground is up on the right.
There is a car park at the ground which is free. There are parking restrictions on Builders Road West going up to and directly outside the ground, but street parking is available further on, in the Industrial Estate. Otherwise there is a car park at Llandudno Railway Station which is around a ten minute walk away, which costs £1 on Saturdays.
Llandudno Railway Station is just under half a mile away from the football ground. The station is served by trains from Manchester Piccadilly and Chester, that then run along the North Wales coast line.
It is only a ten minute walk from the railway station to Llandudno FC. As you come out of the main station entrance, bear right and then turn right into Oxford Road. Then take the next right into Builder Street. Keep straight on along Builder Street going through an industrial area and then as it becomes Builder Street West, past a bus depot on the right and a coach park on the left. The entrance to the ground is a little further along on the left.
