Naming

Keith Hay Park was named after Keith Hay,[1] a former mayor of the Mt Roskill Borough Council, who developed the surrounding land.

Developed on old swampy land, in 1879 Keith Hay Park was described as "cleared, beautifully undulating country dotted with picturesque homesteads and sheening in emerald green with the verdure of luxuriant crops".[4]

In 2014, landscaping, footpath installation and an additional 7,000 square metres (75,000 sq ft) of carparking, was completed to accommodate growth of the surrounding community.

In January 2020, Watercare began construction on a Central Interceptor site in Keith Hay Park.[5]

In September 2022, it was announced by FIFA that Keith Hay Park was shortlisted to be a team base camp for the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup.[6][7] On 12 December 2022, it was announced that New Zealand would use Keith Hay Park as their training ground during the world cup.[8][9]
