Beltane Park is a football ground located in Wishaw, North Lanarkshire, Scotland. It is the home ground of Central Division Two side Wishaw Juniors.

The ground was formed after years of Wishaw Juniors playing outwith the town and at the nearby Wishaw Sports Centre. In 2010, Wishaw Juniors secured a 10-year lease to use Beltane Park as the home ground.[1] Since then, the once open-grassed area has been transformed into a football ground, with terracing along the east side of the ground, and fencing around the whole pitch. Also recently installed at the venue are toilets, a snack bar, a players lounge and dressing rooms, with each of them based in portacabins.

Known locally as The Beltane, the ground has a capacity of around 500 spectators,and was officially opened on 28 July 2012, when Wishaw Juniors played the under-17's of the local senior side Motherwell.[1]

The annual town music festival Be in Belhaven will be moving to Beltane Park for one year only in 2012 from its normal Belhaven Park spot. This is due to Wishaw Town Centre modernzation works.[2]
