The Park was completed in 1960 when the Park was known as Holman Park. It then went on to be known as Te Atatu Park and is currently named Te Atatu Peninsula Park.
The main use is sports fields whilst also providing opportunities
for family gathering, dog walking, children’s play-ground and other passive recreation pursuits. Often the passive users are associated with the sports clubs and the sporting activities.
The main users, which utilise the fields,
are cricket during the summer season and soccer and rugby league during the winter.
The fields are also utilised by a number of other users over the summer including summer soccer, softball training, frisbee associated games, kilikiti and touch rugby.
There are presently four grass cricket wicket blocks and four artificial concrete cricket wickets. The northeastern corner also provides cricket training nets. The grass wicket blocks are demarcated over the winter period with perimeter fencing which precludes these areas from use over winter.
The winter teams of soccer and rugby league each
have a training area with night lighting. Soccer is located adjacent to the clubrooms in the southeast corner and rugby league in the northwest corner. Rugby league presently has one sand slit pitch which is less than full regulation size. The field
is located in the southwest corner. There is one
full size sand slit soccer pitch at the southern end of the ground and a full size soccer pitch at the northern end of the Park. The training area is also used for junior grade soccer.
