Seddon Park is a cricket ground in Hamilton, New Zealand. It is the fourth-largest cricket ground in the country, and is renowned for its village green setting, affording a picnic atmosphere for spectators.Opened in 1950, Seddon Park was named after Richard Seddon, the longest-serving Prime Minister of New Zealand. Due to sponsorship from Trust Bank and subsequently Westpac, the ground was known as Trust Bank Park from 1990 to 1997, as WestpacTrust Park from 1997 to 2003, and as Westpac Park from 2003 to 2006.

These pitches are usually very good for batting. There is an embankment going around three-quarters of the perimeter, with a tall hedgerow outside this embankment.In addition to cricket, Seddon Park has been used for rugby union, rugby league and hockey matches. It therefore has a flexible stadium environment that can be modified accordingly.Usage and StatisticsSeddon Park has been used for first-class cricket since the 1956–57 season, coinciding with the formation of the Northern Districts Cricket Association.

  • Always a lovely place to watch the blackcaps win. Most of the ground is general admission to the grass embankment so bring a blanket and a picnic and something to sit on. 100% Better than Eden park.
