Updates and improvements to the park were completed between 2020 and 2022 with thanks to Columbia Basin Trust’s Basin Plays and Outdoor Revitalisation grants. We would also like to thank the Village of Slocan for supporting the improvements, Kodiak Concrete and Sustainable Roots for carrying out the work, Jeremie from The Grizz Food Truck for donating the mini ramp, and Columbia Power for funding the outdoor pizza oven.
The park was originally built by Spectrum Skatepark Creations, Ltd. and officially opened in September, 2008.
