Saw the first two days of recent England test match here. Lovely old ground with plenty of character, friendly staff and good views of cricket. Only minor criticism was lack of WiFi and could find anywhere to buy a glass of wine.
Beer and food good value and easy to get to ground

What a lovely day again, shared with friends and fans alike....they did run out of castle lite beers....but there was other options we chose too. Love the live entertainment and the band. Always a treat. Took our mini coolerbox in with some allowed items and had a day of fun in the sun!

What is the use of having a beautiful park that is so unsafe. No police to protect public. Not safe to go to at all. Chances are good that you will be robbed. No go area. I even feel unsafe walking on the outside of the park. Terrible car guards, intimidating. Once a month they have a market called 'art in the park'. The only time that it is safe to walk in the park. Just make sure you only go were there are lots of people.

I was walking alone in this park (not advised) during the middle of the day. Suffice it to say that you should *not* enter this park because it is mostly deserted and muggers take advantage of tourists.

Most people in PE associate St. George's park with the cricket grounds. One would almost forget that it is a vast park area with many other attractions. Quite a few spaces (e.g. tennis court and swimming pool, cemetery) are off limits and often fenced. The area with old trees and lawns towards the north is accessible. A lot of work seems to be going on, especially near the Guard memorial. Still, worth while for a stroll.

Was here for the third test Match betweeen SA and England. It's a pretty ground with real history - the first ground in the world to play test cricket outside England and Australia. Usually if music is played at a cricket ground it goes quiet while the bowler runs up. Not here - the tuneless, annoying brass band just goes on and on and on. They have some sense of humour in that the songs they play reflect SA's prformnce in the match, and by the fourth day some of the songs were even recognisable - but was that just because I was becoming immune to the tunelessness? Only one large scoreboard, so a large part of the ground can't see the details ofthe scores, or any replays etc. For food and drinks: great if you like burgers, borewors or Castle Lager - otherwise get a hospitality box or forget it. How can the catering be so bad?

Had my very first picnic at St Georges Park. It was a great day, felt quite safe to enjoy the park. They have a gazebo available for use should you choose, but we enjoyed our spot under a shady tree! :)

Super venue place. Super look out over the well kept grounds. The catering by Bojangles was very good the venue is clean and well presented. We used the presidents suite which I highly recommend for a celebration. A wedding. A 21 st. They staff are very accommodating and it’s a real treat

Nice gardens. Nice for a jog around the park. But be aware of strangers. I would not venture here by myself!

I warmly recommend to have a visit in this special place. I enjoyed the old trees, the quiet atmosphere, and the market called "art in the park" that is all the last sundays. last but not least this park is an historical place (1882)
