Ing. Kosta Petrović was a city planner and head of the public buildings department in Subotica during the interwar period. He was most interested in sports and nature, building the stadium in 1936 as part of the Veliki Narodni Park, which was planned by him. Petrović felt the goal of urban planning was to give the people the opportunity to rest and relax in parks, picnic areas and sports facilities. He was also local chairman of the Sokol Association. He wrote a number of textbooks and, after World War II, a tourist guide on Subotica.

In World War I, Petrović fought with the Austro-Hungarian Army, where he met two engineers from Subotica. The three of them continued their cooperation and friendship after the war. He joined the city service in the 1920s and continued to work there until 1941, but World War II terminated his career. During the German occupation he was displaced and lost his property, and after the war, the authorities were not interested in his services. Petrović was fortunate to get a job at the Technical University and eventually a pension.
