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.

  • Classic kiwi cricket venue. However, it would do better if there were an extention to the existing pavilion and then a corresponding vertical building on the opposite end of the ground.
  • Awesome venue to enjoy cricket. Atmosphere is always good and the ground it's self is a look in the past, with the white picket fence and grass viewing banks. Does not get much better.
  • Great to be able to stretch out and have a picnic while watching the cricket. Also easier to take babies and children to as they can move around more.
  • Great cricket ground. Set up well to cater for families. Really nice to sit on the embankment and watch a game.
  • Fantastic cricket grounds, great atmosphere, not so great parking close by.
