The ground was formed after years of Wishaw playing outwith the town and at the nearby Wishaw Sports Centre. In 2010, Wishaw Juniors secured a 10-year lease to use Beltane Park as the home ground.[1] Since then, the once open-grassed area has been transformed into a football ground, with terracing along the east side of the ground, and fencing around the whole pitch. Also recently installed at the venue are toilets, a snack bar, a players lounge and dressing rooms, with each of them based in portacabins.

Known locally as The Beltane, the ground has a capacity of around 500 spectators, and was officially opened on 28 July 2012, when Wishaw played the under-17's of the local senior side Motherwell.[1]
