Parnell Park follows the standard four-sided design of most stadiums. The ground has a main stand on the north side of the pitch which can seat about 2,800. The main stand is covered and has one tier. The stand includes facilities and shops under the stand.

The rest of the ground is terraced with the majority of it covered, although some of the main terrace on the south side is not covered. The terrace on the west side of the ground is known as the Church end due to it being near Donnycarney Church. The terraces in Parnell are all one tier and the facilities and shops are at the rear or the side depending on which terrace you are in. The terraces in Parnell Park can hold about 8,000.[ original research? ]
