First Game - Round 11, 1925
Last Game - Round 2, 1973

A ground with a road down one side and a railway line down the other never gave any great room for expansion, but the Hawks did get almost fifty years of VFL football out of their ground before moving to Princes Park.

The Hawks had played at the ground since 1903, and it gained a wooden stand at the closure of the East Melbourne Cricket Ground. It remained in place until being demolished in 1966. Another grandstand was opened in 1938, built at a cost of 17 thousand pounds.

Melbourne were dominant at Glenferrie Road in Hawthorn's early years in the competition, but even when the Demons became a powerhouse the long and narrow ground occasionally tripped them up.
