The Park Lane ground is fairly easy to find, and by following the directions / maps below, you should be able to easily find it

You will probably come onto Canvey along the A130 Canvey Way.
This will bring you to a roundabout at Waterside Farm.
Take the 2nd exit (B1014) which is signposted for Town Centre.
You should now be on Somnes Avenue.
The golf course will be on your left and the sports centre will be on your right.
After .7 mile you will come to a small roundabout - take 2nd exit.
You should still be on Somnes Avenue
After a further 1/2 mile you will come to a mini-roundabout
Take 1st exit into Climmen Road
(The direction sign tells you to go straight on.  You can follow this if you wish,
but this route will take you into the town centre which is not always a good
idea on a Saturday afternoon!) 
Turn left into Climmen Rd. which becomes Dovervelt Road
You should have the rugby club on your left.
After .6 mile you come to another roundabout.
Take 2nd exit into Mitchells Avenue.
You will now have a cricket club on your left.
After .2 mile you will come to a T-junction with High Street.
The Murco garage should be on your right (remember this landmark
for your return journey).
Turn left and follow road for 1/2 mile, you should come to a mini-roundabout and
pass a large pub called the Admiral Jellico*
Keep straight on, through a chicane, past Leigh Beck Primary School on right,
You will see the Transport Museum on right 
Park Lane is a turning on right, (double mini-roundabout) 200yds further on.
CIFC is at end of Park Lane (100yds) with large, free car park.
For very big crowds, there is plenty of street parking in the vicinity of the ground.

For games where a large attendance is expected , please see alternative parking directions below (Click here to jump)

*Canvey's bar is quite small.  When large crowds are expected, you might consider stopping at the Jellico for pre-match drinks and eats.  Canvey club bar serves Stella Artois, Fosters and John Smith's,  The burger bar at the ground serves the usual range of chips, burgers, hot-dogs, etc.  The quality is quite good, especially the bacon burgers. 

If you are travelling by public transport the nearest train station is Benfleet.  This is 3.44 miles from the turnstiles, so the bus might be a better choice than walking. Any bus that goes to 'Leigh Beck' or 'The Point' will suffice, these normally depart from the farthest bus stop. 

The cost of admission to Park Lane is -
Adult - 9
Senior Citizen - 7
Junior (u 16) - 4
Junior (accompanied) - 1
Transfer to seating - 1

Pre-match drinks on a Saturday are only 1.50 up to 3:00pm

The map below gives a close up image of part of the Island.

Some of the pubs on the Island.  The Jellico is the closest pub to the
ground but recently away fans have found the service rather slow.  Next
best bet is The Windjammer.  Follow the signposts for the Seafront. 
The pub is opposite the sea wall has bars upstairs and down. 
To get to the ground from here, keep driving/walking along the seafront
(turn left as you come out of the pub) and go as far as you can. 
There is plenty of parking at the end of the seafront and it is only a
2 minute walk to the ground (visible from the sea wall)

When Congested - for big games.

We do not suggest attempting to park on the roads surrounding the ground (marked in red), on street parking is possible on the roads marked in yellow - but we recommend the seafront (Eastern Esplanade) on dates before Good Friday, or after 18:30 on dates after Good Friday. This can be accessed via SeaView Road. Turn right at the mini-roundabout outside the Admiral Jellicoe Pub. Please respect our neighbours and do not block driveways, park on grass verges etc.
