The grounds are kept in immaculate condition and the stand was spotlessly clean. No sign of graffiti tags anywhere.

The garden and oval here were lovely, well-kept, and a pleasure to walk around. Nice old buildings surrounding the oval, nice for a stroll and short visit.

I am not sure if you will find a more beautiful historic oval anywhere than that of the Stawell Oval. So much history for one oval especially with the Stawell Gift Race held each Easter. The surrounding gardens are a delight. Credit to Stawell.
