Vale Park is the home of the English football club Port Vale. The club has played at the ground since 1950.

Although the club is thought to have been founded in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, where Vale Park is situated, between 1913 and 1950 the club played at the Old Recreation Ground in Hanley, on land now occupied by the Potteries Shopping Centre.

The current stadium holds 18,900 supporters and has four stands: The Bycars End, Lorne Street, The Railway Paddock (Paddock) and Hamil Road End. It was built to be the Wembley of the North.
