HistoryEdit

Maesdu Park was first opened in 1991 after Llandudno's previous ground was sold for use as an Asda store. Floodlights were added in 1994 and the following season the club constructed a small clubhouse and two small stands providing 130 seats. A new press box, changing rooms and new grandstands have since been completed.[3]

An artificial pitch was installed at the stadium in the summer of 2010.[4]

In a deal with Giant Hospitality in August 2016, the stadium was renamed.[5]

From January 2019, Bangor City played at the ground when water and electricity were cut off from their Nantporth home due to debt.[6]

ClubhouseEdit

The stadium has its own bar, The Crossbar, which is available for hire as well as opening on match days.[7]
