One of the most Picturesque stadiums in Australia, the Adelaide Oval has undergone redevelopment and emerged with a unique blend of the old and new. Worth mentioning are the Edwardian scoreboard, the giant Moreton Bay fig trees planted in the 1890s and the grassed mounds at each end, called ‘The Hills’, created in 1898 are all notable points of interest.

Adelaide Oval Reviews & Ratings
What a great oval, easily one of the best in Australia. They have blended the old stadium with the new stadiums perfectly. Close to the city and easy to walk to. All of the seats have a great view and it is great that they kept the old scoreboard and the hill. The only issue is the price of food and drink, it is a joke. $10.30 for a mid-strength beer, $6.40 for a bottle of water and around $5 for a small hot chips. We all know that oval food is expensive but it really is over the top. If they can reduce the cost of food/water then it would be 5 stars.
My initial response is the aesthetics, I think it's a brilliant looking structure both inside & out, but the proposed new hotel, in my view, would detract from the overall spectacle. When one considers this venue has a capacity in the vicinity of about 55K, there is a relative ease to both get in & out of the oval. The buses are in close proximity upon arriving or departing, the bridge offers easy access across the Torrens & into the city. I even found city car parking convenient with a minimum of fuss at a reasonable price. The venue offers plenty of food & drink outlets, also plenty of toilet facilities, a substantial improvement on Football Park. We all know about the excessive & exorbitant prices charged for food & beverages, an unfortunate imposition & unnecessary negative. Most agree that retaining the grass hill & old score board, not to mention the outstanding trees, is a masterstroke that adds to the ambience & atmophere to the well designed stadium. It's easy to discern why Adelaide Oval is regarded as one of the best, particularly as a cricket ground. I love & prefer the night games, both footy & cricket, it enhances the experience for me. You don't need me to convince anyone that this is a huge recommend. Cheers.
Clean. Roomy. Great bathroom facilities. Plenty food stalls n drinks. Great views from all angles. Forget the grassy knoll for watching football...hood zone difficult to see and foul language/ sledging
Visit was to watch cricket. It was in a members area so seating was ample and superbly situated. It was possible to watch seated at a table inside as well as seating just outside.the view of the game was excellent with lighting making it a great special.
I took two grandsons to the football... entrance tickets reasonably priced, food and drinks cost so much more than the tickets!!!!!! Next time i will find the time to take a packed meal.. . Far to expensive for what little they had....i will not be buying food or drinks again at adelaide oval...
