YOUR TOWN

Arden Street has been the spiritual home of the North Melbourne Football Club.

This Sunday, the Oval will host its first game since 1985 when North Melbourne play Hawthorn for the pre season competition. 

An intimate and simple ground, the game has sold out with an estimated 5000 people to attend. 

Perhaps one of the most famous incidents at the ground is the 1978 elephant running rampant around the oval trying to promote a local circus. 

Donald McDonald, former North Melbourne footballer and director of of stakeholder relations at North Melbourne Football Club wasn’t there for the elephant, however had an incident with another animal. 

‘On the last game played at Arden Street, a photo on the front page of the Herald Sun had me on a ground and a dog was jumping over my back,’ Donald told Tom Elliott. 

‘A dog must’ve run onto the ground.’
