The park was built between a partnership with the city of Lowell and the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Named after a local civic leader who spearheaded the initial redevelopment of Lowell, the park was built adjacent to the residential section of UML. Populous (formerly HOK Sport) designed the park. It offers views of the Aiken Street Bridge, Lawrence Mills, Fox Hall, and University Suites. The seating bowl is raised above the field. A concourse surrounds the top of the park. The refreshment, merchandise stands and bathrooms are located here. The design enables an open view while waiting in line.
Two seating expansions have been considered since the park opened. One plan would have added 600-1000 seats on the third base side. The expansion would match how the first base side is angled towards the infield. The other proposal was to add a smaller version of the Green Monster with seating for approximately 200 people. This would also would have shortened the field and raised the wall to 20 ft (6.1 m). Due to lack of funds, neither have been built.
