As a away supporter. I was very impressed with the place. Home fans were very welcoming. I went through pitchers after pitchers of cider. Hopefully next season. Plymouth parkway 1-1 Basingstoke

Good day. Apart from the result. Wish they printed a programme. Would have bought a 50/50 if they had.

Never a happy hunting ground for my team, but it's a nice stadium with a small but good bar area. The staff are always really nice and you get a warm welcome. Parking can be an issue though.
First time here boxing day. Very impressed with the match day experience, got the buzz of a national league south club. Clubhouse amazing, ground is nice , can tell the parkway supporters are argyle fans !! Proper nice people !!

History (from Wikipedia)

Stadium[edit]

See also: Stadium for Cornwall and Treyew Road

Truro City play their home games at Treyew Road, Truro, TR1 2TH. The ground has been their home since the mid-1900s. A covered terrace was in place behind one of the goals until the mid-1970s when a road widening scheme resulted in it being removed. Only in recent years have they added to their old stand and erected two new stands on opposite sides of the ground lifting the capacity to approximately 3,000.

In 2005 the club announced plans to build a new 16,000-seater stadium in Truro as a new home for the city's football club.
[38] However, the £12m plans were opposed by some residents who live near the proposed site at Treyew Road.[39] In 2006, the club revealed plans for a £7m football training complex. The club wanted to build two new pitches and a club house on land in Kenwyn, Truro with a 60-bed hotel and offices at its present Treyew Road base.[40] However, in 2007, Carrick District Council rejected the plans for the new 16,000-seater stadium, a decision which club chairman Kevin Heaney described as a 'major blow'.[41]

In 2011 
Cornwall Council started developing a business plan for the proposed Stadium for Cornwall, which would host both Truro City and the Cornish Pirates rugby union team.[42]

In 2014, the club sold Treyew Road for redevelopment, with the intention of using the money as their share of the development costs for the planned new stadium. The club received three extensions allowing them to stay at the ground following its sale, but in the summer of 2018, the development company announced its plans to begin work on the project immediately, forcing Truro City to find a temporary location. Eventually, the club came to an agreement with divisional rivals 
Torquay United to undertake a groundshare of their Plainmoor stadium, a ground that was 2 hours away from Truro.[43] This agreement created the quirk of having more than 2,700 away fans than home ones in attendance when Truro hosted Torquay that season.[44]

In October 2018 it was revealed that the deal with Helical Retail, who were going to redevelop the Treyew Road site into a supermarket, was off. In January 2019, Truro returned to Treyew Road, but insisted that their return to the ground did not affect their plans to share the proposed 
Stadium for Cornwall[45] with rugby union club Cornish Pirates in future. The Pirates bought Truro in March 2019.[46]

In January 2021 it was announced that the club will finally leave their Treyew Road ground and groundshare with 
Plymouth Parkway F.C. at Bolitho Park, Plymouth, until 2022 when the Stadium for Cornwall is scheduled to be finished.[47]
