National Cricket Stadium, previously known as Queen's Park, is the name of a cricket stadium complex in River Road, Grenada in the Caribbean and was a location for the 2007 Cricket World Cup. It became the 84th Test venue in 2002 when it hosted its first match between West Indies and New Zealand. As of 18 August, 2014, here held two test matches.[2]

After being rebuilt in 2000, the new complex was damaged in October 2004 as a direct result from Hurricane Ivan.

The pitch 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.
