How did Eden Park Open Day rate?




  1. Joshua says:

    Great photo’s Alex - I have some more Exterior Ones on my blog at for anybody who couldn’t get there today.

    Have to say that Super Screen is very impressive I must have left before they turned it on.

  2. Chris says:

    It is rightly named ‘The Garden of Eden’

  3. Kettle Watch says:

    Nice coverage of the opening of the open day.

    Some 360′s of Eden park can be found here

  4. Kel says:

    Very Nice!! It would look even better if there weren’t gaps between the grand stands! Anyway, looks very modern and clean!

    Not a rugby fan, but looks nice - especially like the carved statues.
