It could seat 4,000 spectators and could accommodate upwards of 10,000 standing. It was home to the Toronto Argonauts from 1874-1877, Toronto Football Club/Toronto Athletic Club 1879-1897 and again from 1908-1915. It hosted the Canadian Dominion Football Championship game in 1892, 1894, 1896, 1900, 1905 and 1908.
The 3,400 seat stadium and field was originally owned by the Rosedale Golf Club (which lent its name to the park). The grandstand is no longer standing; however the field is still there, and is used for soccer. The namesake golf course moved out in 1909 as the The Scottish Ontario and Manitoba Land Company re-developed the area for residential homes.
The current field is part of Rosedale Park, owned by the City of Toronto. The home of the Rosedale Tennis Club is located in the northern portion of the park. An outdoor skating rink, two sets of tennis courts, a playground, wading pool, and a baseball field are also available in the park. Mooredale House uses the park for a soccer league and baseball league as well a hockey league.
The field is also home to the annual spring park party, Mayfair. The event typically consists of rides, games, flea market and other such carnival-type activities. The event is traditionally on the first Saturday in May. The event is run and funded by Mooredale House. Celebrations surrounding the 100th Grey Cup in 2012 began with the unveiling of a Heritage Toronto commemorative plaque at Rosedale Park.
