McKellar Park, formally known as Belconnen Soccer Centre and McKellar Soccer Centre, is a stadium in the Canberra suburb of McKellar, in Australia. The playing surface is rectangular in shape and is used almost exclusively for football (soccer) matches. The venue is the home ground of ACT Premier League club Belconnen United FC and W-League club Canberra United FC.

The main grandstand is named after Ken Carter, who has been involved in the Belconnen Soccer Club since its formation and contributed significantly to the club's development.

The venue was opened on 23 November 2002 by ACT Senator Margaret Reid, the first match being a NSWPL match between Belconnen and Bonnyrigg White Eagles ending in a 2-2 draw.[1]

All matches of the 2003 OFC Women's Championship were held at this venue, the tournament won by Australia.

A-League team, Central Coast Mariners played Belconnen United at the venue in 2007,2008,2009 and 2010.
