Field development was recommended, subject to funding, in the Parks and Recreation Master Plan, which Council adopted in July 2010. Council approved construction in 2012 after the Province of British Columbia agreed to contribute a grant, covering nearly half of the project costs.
The site, which will includes the field and the adjacent Mar Jok Elementary School, was secured in partnership with the Central Okanagan School District as part of the neighbourhood development plan.
