Planning and development of this community park began in 2003 with funding assistance from special Tourism British Columbia funding grants, the Trans Canada Trail Foundation, and the Federal Western Economic Diversification Program. Construction began in 2007 for the various park amenities including a caretaker's residence, a washroom building and a new playground area.
The park is a perfect rural location, close to nature, to bring your family for a day of hiking, picnicking and playing in the playground.
