The complete budget for the skatepark is $595,000. This amount includes $137,000 from community fundraising. most of which came from the Penny Lane Society.

The municipality has contributed $485,000 for the project, with the money coming from capital funds.

When completed, it will replace an older skatepark near the Summerland Arena. That skatepark was constructed more than 20 years ago and is showing signs of its age.
