It is currently used mostly for rugby union and rugby league matches, being one of two home stadiums for the Bay of Plenty Rugby Union (the other being Baypark Stadium in Tauranga).

The stadium was originally built in 1911, and renovated several times since. The stadium features a covered stand seating up to 4,000 with uncovered seating area on the western side of the field.
