The park will be approximately 24 acres in phase 1. The facility will also include a multi-use field and parking, according to Councilwoman Margaret Wille.

When the original plan was shared at a public meeting organized by Hawaii County Parks &Recreation Department in October 2014 at Kahilu Town Hall, the park plan included 50 acres, three covered buildings, three fields, a courtyard, two playground areas, and a multi-use pedestrian and bike path.
