Telford Street Park was a football ground in Inverness, Scotland. It was the home ground of Caledonian F.C. and latterly Caledonian Thistle F.C..[2]

History[edit]

Caledonian played at the eponymous Caledonian Park until the mid-1920s, when Telford Street Park was built. A fire destroyed the original stand in 1950, and a new one was built.[3] After the merger of Thistle and Caledonian to form Caledonian Thistle, the new team played at the ground until moving to the Caledonian Stadium. Telford Street Park was demolished in 1996 and is now a retail park.
