Buffalo Park is a cricket ground located in East London, Eastern Cape, South Africa. It is one of the home grounds for the Warriors cricket team, and the principal home ground for Border. It can hold up to 20,000 spectators.

Buffalo Park superseded the Jan Smuts Ground in East London as Border's main home ground in the 1987–88 season. It has hosted one Test match, in October 2002, and hosted a number of One Day Internationals.

It was also known as Mercedes-Benz Park, thanks to sponsorship from the German motor manufacturer.
