Antigua Recreation Ground is the national stadium of Antigua and Barbuda. It is located in St. John's, on the island of Antigua. The ground has been used by the West Indies cricket team and Antigua and Barbuda national football team. It has Test cricket status.

A number of great cricketers, including Andy Roberts and Richie Richardson, began their first-class careers there.

One of Antigua's most famous sons, Viv Richards, scored the fastest Test match century off 56 balls v England in the "Blackwash" series of 1986 at the Recreation Ground. It was also where Brian Lara twice set the record for highest individual Test innings, scoring 375 in 1994 and the current record of 400 not out in 2004, both times against England.
