The home ground of the Tuggeranong Vikings and the Canberra Vikings is the impressive Viking Park. Built directly adjacent to the Vikings Erindale Club, this facility is widely regarded as the best club rugby ground in Australia. Access to the licensed Club is available from the park.

Boasting two first class ovals, the main ground features lighting of TV broadcast quality, while ground two has lighting quality suited to Super 14 team training demands.

The final series of the ACTRU competition are played at the Viking Park Rugby Complex; a clear indication of the quality surface and amenities on site. In recent times the club has hosted Australian Schoolboys Test Matches (2003 v Tonga and 2004 v Ireland Schools) and looks forward to hosting the annual Australian Schoolboy Championships in June 2005. High profile Nationalteams such as Canada and Tonga used the high class venue in preparation for their Rugby World Cup games in Canberra in 2003. The ACT Brumbies have used the lush venue on regular occassions as well as a number of touring Super 14 teams. 

There is a 2000 seat grand stand as well as six large dressing sheds and a medical room for strapping and massage. There are also numerous storage facilities and state of the art training equipment for scrum work and contact drills.
