The Centre has a 50 space car park and parents from outside the village are encouraged to use this when driving their children to school in order to avoid danger and congestion outside the school entrances in Low Green. There is direct access from the Centre to the school grounds

The Centre is not a City of York facility, it is a community facility held on charitable trusts for the benefit of Copmanthorpe and District. It is funded by commercial rents, contributions from sports clubs, grants from the Parish Council and fund raising activities, chiefly Copmanthorpe Carnival

Dogs are not allowed on any part of the centre grounds at any time.
