The jewel in the crown of Napier’s suite of sports grounds, McLean Park is the home ground of the Hawke's Bay Rugby Union (Magpies) and the Central Districts Cricket Association (Stags). Established in 1911, McLean Park is one of the oldest sporting venues that is still in regular use in New Zealand. International Cricket and Rugby is regularly played at the picturesque venue located close the centre of Napier City.
The venue has a plethora of seating in the stands to really take in the action and also including a sloping embankment that allows cricket to be viewed the way it is meant to be – in the sun, on a picnic blanket, with a host of food and beverage outlets never too far away. The venue also allows for boutique corporate marquee experiences.

Napier, population 62,800, is located on the East Coast in Hawkes Bay, about 4 hours’ drive north of Wellington, or around 5.5 hours’ drive south of Auckland. In 1931 Napier city was destroyed by a major earthquake. Art Deco architecture was popular at that time, so most of the central city’s buildings were rebuilt in the Art Deco style. This is now a major tourist drawcard, and Napier is host to an annual Art Deco Weekend celebrating its history, and the Art Deco period. Napier has some of the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand, and the surrounding Hawkes Bay region is a top-producing area for wineries and orchards.
