One that stands out is the 1997 round 22 comeback win over the Blues which knocked them out of the finals  ;D.

Hated the ground back then and nothing has changed. I remember playing a home game there in the 90's against the Eagles which we won by 11 goals and I still hated it

In the (very) old days [before my time], you use to be able to catch the train to what was then the North Carlton station on the now defunct inner circle line. I remember hearing the funny story of Jack Dyer on gameday catching the wrong train from West Richmond and ending up in Reservoir before he realised. He only made it all the way back to Princes Park just as the game was starting lol.

As for my memories, it was always a ground that was a pain to get to and out of and we use regularly to lose at  :P. I reckon I could count the wins on one hand  :P.

One positive memory was watching Cotch in the U18s playing for Vic Metro against SA. Knew that day we had to grab him at pick 2 in the 2007 draft as he was clearly going to become the star he is now = Richmond's future premiership captain :bow.
