The Old Recreation Ground was home to Port Vale Football Club for 37 years from 1913.


Despite attempts to move on from this restricted site, the club improved the ground, including constructing a new Main Stand in 1931. Vale continued to play at the ground until 1950, when they moved to their current home, Vale Park.


The Old Recreation Ground became a car park. The site was eventually redeveloped as part of the Potteries shopping centre.
