In anticipation of the end of a lease of three ballfields from Leroy Springs & Company at the Fort Mill YMCA facility, the Town began searching several years ago for alternative ballfield space. As part of that search, the Town entered into discussions to address this need with Lennar, the developer of the Waterside at the Catawba community. Lennar recognized the benefits that a park would add to the Town and the company was happy to contribute land for that purpose.

Council approved funding the $11 million project in August 2019.
