Welcome to Home Park
Just north of Plymouth’s Central Park, Home Park is an all-seater football stadium, and has been the home ground of Plymouth Argyle since 1901. It suffered major damage during World War Two, after development in the 20s and 30s. After further redevelopment in the early noughties, it hosted one of the biggest crowds in its history, when Plymouth Argyle played Watford in the 2007 FA Cup quarter-finals.
