Queen's Park Oval, in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, is currently the largest capacity cricket ground in the West Indies and has hosted more Test matches than any other ground in the Caribbean. It also hosted a number of matches in the 2007 Cricket World Cup.

It is privately owned by the Queen's Park Cricket Club and has seating for about 25,000. The Trinidad and Tobago cricket team play most of their home matches at the ground. The cricket field has also been used to host several domestic and international football matches.

In February 2010 American Singer-songwriter Beyoncé Knowles was supposed to be performing at the Oval to a sold out show, however due to phenomenal demand for tickets the venue was changed to the Queen's Park Savannah.

Besides the main cricket stadium, the facility includes a Gym, indoor and outdoor cricket practice nets, two squash courts and two outdoor tennis courts.

The ground is considered one of the most picturesque venues in the world of cricket, featuring the view Trinidad's Northern Range.
