Each day, thousands of motorists drive by Whitton Park, which is located on the north side of Arbroath Road (A92) at the point where the road widens to accommodate Claypotts junction to the immediate east of the ground. 

 

A well known Junior football venue for over half a century, Whitton Park can accommodate 2,500 people. This neat arena is a very pleasant place to watch football on a nice day, but spectator facilities remain basic. There are grassed, sloping embankments on three sides and a refreshment bar is situated within the pavilion at the Arbroath Road end of the park but there is no cover or seating for onlookers in any part of the ground.  There is limited car parking accommodation for around forty cars immediately in front of the main entrance on Arbroath Road. 

 

Owned by Dundee City Council and leased by Broughty Athletic Football Club and Dundee East Community Sports Club, the ground was formerly known as Claypotts Park. In 1989 it was re-named Whitton Park to commemorate Eddie Whitton, who served Broughty Athletic Football Club with great distinction for forty-five years. 

 

 

The existing pavilion was built in the early 1980s and this accommodation comprises two changing rooms for players, a changing room for match officials, an office, a small kitchen and a lounge. Adjacent to the pavilion are Portakabin-style relocatable buildings, which augment the original dressing room accommodation. The following pictures illustrate the continuing redevelopment of Whitton Park.
