McLean Park has four stands - the Harris, Chapman, Graham Lowe and Centennial Stands. It also has an embankment where there are no seats. It has six floodlights for day -night games. It doesn't have a permanent big screen.
McLean is the home ground for Hawke's Bay rugby and the Central Districts cricket as they are the only sports played on the ground.
Rugby World Cup games have been played there in 1987 and 2011.
The new Graham Lowe stand opened in 2009.

History of McLean Park
In 1905 a trust was formed to remember Donald. That is why the park was built.
During the 1931 earthquake, water was pumped from wells at the park and the area was used as a dressing station where doctors worked around the clock to dress the wounds of injured people.
