The ground was greatly improved in the mid 1990’s, with the construction of two new stands at one end and one side of the ground. The four sides of the ground are known as the Hartlepool College of Further Education stand, The Mill House Stand, The Cyril Knowles Stand and the Rink End. The Hartlepool College of Further Education is a standing area behind the south goal, it is usually the most vocal area of the ground. The Millhouse Stand is an all seating stand with a terraced paddock and it is located at the east side of the ground. The Cyril Knowles Stand is a modern all seater stand that is located on the west of the ground. The Rink End is the newest of the stands and it is located at the North End of the ground. The Rink End houses 961 away fans, although teams with large away followings are sometimes given a small section of the Mill House stand.
The ground is located on Clarence Road, which is a stones throw from the Town Centre. This allows visitors access to a large range of pubs. However, the most popular pub for visiting fans is The Corner Flag which is located on the Victoria Park’s premises between the Mill House Stand and the Rink End. The newly opened The Victoria Suite is also located at the ground but this is for members only. The ground’s location also makes parking easier as it is near several large car parks such as the Jacksons Landing Shopping Centre and the Historic Quay – However please be aware that parking is not allowed in the two retail parks and the Asda carpark. The ground is also easy to access for those coming by train as it is only 1/2 mile from the station.
