The park will feature a 360-degree open concourse with added shade around the park. The permanent seating will change from 2,400 to more than 4,000. Grass berms and other non-traditional seating will also be available, which the university hopes will help create a more social atmosphere.

The new park will be located on the southwest corner of campus, while the current stadium will be turned into a football training center.
