The ground was the former home of the City-South Football Club in the former NTFA (now the NTFL) until they merged with East Launceston during the 1986 TFL season to become South Launceston.
Youngtown Memorial Ground has one small main stand (Reg Walker Stand) which was transported across from the former York Park BMX track in the early 1990s and was later sealed, roofed and had changerooms built beneath, the rest of the ground has parking spaces available to cars. It has a capacity of approximately 4,000 and regularly hosts finals for the current NTFA (formerly the Tasmanian Amateur Football League Northern Division) competition. Youngtown was much maligned during the former TFL Statewide League years as South Launceston were, on several occasions moved away from the ground by the TFL to play at York Park in an effort to attract bigger crowds and play at a better facility. South Launceston will be playing its home fixtures at Youngtown in the Tasmanian State League (TSL) in 2009.
