In 1905 Sir Douglas McLean and a syndicate of Napier men established a trust to raise money to buy land for public recreation. In 1910, ten acres of land was gifted by Sir Douglas as a memorial to his father. The land was officially named the 'Sir Donald McLean Park' by an act of Parliament in 1911. Today it is simply known as 'McLean Park'. McLean Park is now home to all the major representative and international Rugby, and cricket, played in Hawke's Bay and has also hosted fixtures for the FIFA World U17 Women's World Cup. The last four years have seen an upgrade to the stadium match lighting and one entire grandstand has been removed and a stunning new stand, complete with a corporate entertainment complex built in its place.
