Lannigan Field became home to the Virginia Track and Field teams in 1971. For six decades before that, the Virginia track team used Lambeth field as its home facility. It was not until the efforts of two former track students, Ed Hardy and Vincent Derr, that work on a new track was started. They formed a committee, headed by Bernard Chamberlain, Robert Gooch and Pete Delaney, to find funds for the facility. Their endeavor was bolstered by a contribution from the Department of Athletics. An expansion to Lannigan Field that included a new 400-meter, eight-lane track, grandstand seating for 1,500 fans, lights, scoreboard, lockers and an entry plaza was completed in the spring of 2012.
The Park is located on the North Grounds of the University of Virginia. The Park has several multiple-use fields, including the varsity softball field, used exclusively by the Virginia softball team.
