In agreement with the Boise Noon Optimists the sports complex is primarily football fields and soccer fields. This agreement came about through a contract made between the City of Boise and the Boise Noon Optimists in 2002. The Boise Noon Optimists led by Jerron Moore agreed to raise funds for the development and perform the construction of the park. The City then took over maintaining the park.
Dogs are allowed on-leash outside of the designated football and soccer seasons. These dates are posted at the park.
- August - October (football season)
- April - May (soccer season)
