Traffic congestion can be heavy for the majority of cricket events, particularly during peak commuter travel times around the City Centre.
Limited parking is available on Riccarton Ave and surrounding streets. If attending Cricket events, there is no parking available at the Sir Richard Hadlee Sports Centre.
