Dominating the parkland between Torrens Lake and St. Peter's Cathedral lies the Adelaide Oval, often lauded as the most picturesque cricket ground in the world. The first test match played here was between Australia and England in 1884. Since that time, the ground has been used for other sports such as rugby and Australian rules football. The distinctive Victor Richardson and Clarrie Grimmett gates add special character to the cricket ground, while the splendid old scoreboard dates back to Edwardian times. Public tours of the Oval and museum are conducted every Tuesday and Thursday, as well as Sundays during cricket season.
