Chevrolet Park is a multi-purpose stadium in Bloemfontein, South Africa. It is currently used mostly for cricket matches. It is the home of the Knights cricket team. The stadium holds 20,000 people and opened in 1989.

A naming rights arrangement saw the ground renamed Goodyear Park until the 2007-08 season when it was renamed the OUTsurance Oval. As of the 2011-2012 season it was again renamed Chevrolet Park.

This was the same stadium were a young Colin Ingram scored his maiden ODI century in his first international match. He subsequently became the first South African to score a century on debut.
