In March 1929 both the body of water and the surrounding land were acquired by the Pro Balneario Board of the Municipality of Viña del Mar, where the construction of a sports field was planned, inaugurated on September 8 of that year with The name of El Tranque Stadium. In 1960 the stadium and the lagoon changed their name with the signing of the brotherhood agreement with the American city of Sausalito.
