In November 1991, ten acres were deeded to the Park District by Centex Homes and became known as Grosse Pointe Park. In December 1993, six additional acres were deeded to the Park District. The west and final section of the park was donated by Centex homes to the District in 2000.

In 1998, the District negotiated a 20-year agreement with Commonwealth Edison to lease the one-mile right-of-way at the park’s west end. During the park’s second phase of development, a new parking lot and a walking/bike path was added on the ComEd right-of-way. The Com Ed agreement was renewed in 2017.

In 2015, a new playground was added near the ball fields.
