The Grenada National Cricket Stadium, formerly Queen's Park, is a cricket ground on River Road, St George's, the capital of Grenada. A Grenada cricket team is first recorded in West Indies cricket in 1887, playing against a touring Gentlemen of America team at the original Queen's Park ground. Ten years later, Grenada played against Lord Hawke's touring team. Unlike several matches on the tour, that one did not have first-class status. In 1899, G. A. de Freitas and William Mignon became the first Grenada cricketers to play first-class cricket.

The newly rebuilt Queen's Park Stadium became the 84th Test venue in 2002 when it hosted its first match between the West Indies and New Zealand. As of 18 August 2014, two test matches have taken place at the ground.[1] It was one of the locations for the 2007 Cricket World Cup.

After being rebuilt in 2000, the new complex was damaged in September 2004, as a result of Hurricane Ivan.[2]

The oval is noted for being elongated towards the Pavilion end, giving a more baseball type look to the ground. The stadium was funded by the People's Republic of China.
