Plaque will be constructed at Summerland Skatepark

Donors to be recognized at new $600,000 facility

A name has been selected for a new skatepark at the corner of Jubilee Road West and Rosedale Avenue.

The park will be named Summerland Skatepark and a bronze plaque will be placed at the site, recoognizing and thanking the municipality, School District 67, community contributions and the Penny Lane Legacy Fund.

The names of Penny Lane directors will also be included on the plaque. The directors to be named will be Ellen Lloyd, Art Sewell, Orv Robson, Allan Fabbi, Scott Boswell, Rick Thorpe and Bruce Hallquist.

The skatepark will open in spring. The park is on school district property.

The plaque is expected to cost around $1,500. Funding for the plaque will come from the skatepark budget.

Penny Lane contributed $145,000 to the project. Community contributions accounted for another $10,000. The remainder of the money came from the municipality through the Federal Gas Tax — Community Works Funding.

Coun. Doug Holmes and Coun. Richard Barkwill voted against the resolution. They said the individual names of board members should not be included on the sign. Instead, they preferred to name the park in honour of Penny Lane.
