Meadow Park is a football ground in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, England. It is the home ground of Boreham Wood F.C. and also used to host the home matches of Arsenal Women F.C., Arsenal youth teams,[2] and Watford Reserves.

History[edit]

Boreham Wood moved to Meadow Park from Eldon Avenue in 1963.[3] A new main stand was built shortly afterwards. This was demolished in 1999 and replaced by a new cantilever stand.[3] A new West Stand was opened in 2014.[4]

The ground's record attendance of 4,030 was set for a friendly match against Arsenal on 13 July 2001.[3]
