Mindoo Phillip Park is a multipurpose stadium located in Marchand, Castries, Saint Lucia.[1] It is a training and competition venue for cricket, football, rugby and track and field, among other sports. It was formerly a home venue for the Windward Islands cricket team.

First class cricket has not been played since 2001 due to the construction of Beausejour Stadium.[2] The ground hosted two One Day Internationals, in 1978 and 1984.[3] Both matches involved West Indies and Australia. On 12 April 1978, Australia beat West Indies by 2 wickets. On 19 April 1984, West Indies returned the favour, winning by 7 wickets.

The venue had previously been known as Victoria Park, but in 1979 it was renamed after Francis "Mindoo" Phillip, widely acclaimed as the island's greatest cricketer.
