The park was acquired by the city around 1970. A new play area was installed in 2018.
In 2022 the park was closed for several months while the city worked on a $3.2 million project to create a new stormwater management basin in the park along Scio Church Road, which is designed to protect nearby neighborhoods against flooding. The construction also included a new unpaved path connecting the park to Scio Church Road. The construction was finished in November 2022. See more details about the project here. A trail connecting to the park through
Eisenhower Park was also finished in the same month.
