Molyneux Park is a cricket ground in Alexandra, Otago, New Zealand. The first recorded match held on the ground came in January 1961 when Central Otago played the touring Marylebone Cricket Club.[1]

The ground later held its first first-class match during the 1978/79 Shell Cup when Otago played Central Districts. The following season the first List A match was held there when Otago played Wellington in the 1980/81 Shell Trophy. Molyneux Park has been used as a home venue for Otago since then, hosting 28 first-class matches,[2] 63 List A matches,[3] as well as two Twenty20 matches.[4] Between 2006 and 2009, Otago Women used the ground for home matches in the State League.[5]

Two Youth Test matches have been played there. The first came in 1999 when New Zealand Under-19s played England Under-19s, while the second saw New Zealand Under-19s play South Africa Under-19s.[6] Three Youth One Day Internationals were also played there between 1993 and 1995.[7]
