It is mostly famous for and it is used basically for Domestic and all the Big International Cricket Events that are taken place here in. Enjoy!!
  • It's a park. Cricket's on right now. Pretty boring, but good if it's your jam I guess. Mint views, mad foods which are probably expensive. Heaps of portaloos and I'm pretty sure they're nice. Have a good time Aye. Lots of carparks when events are on, have a fiver ready for the rad donation though... Overall a tidy park, people who work there are dope too.
  • Nice but tiny ground. Grass banks have ample shade at the back. Good wheelchair access. Lots of parking.
  • Awesome set up for a 20/20 cricket game. A good family atmosphere
  • Such and chill and relaxing ground. Great place to watch cricket from the embankment.
