History

The park was created at the time of subdivision in 1981.  Local residents (primarily school children) developed a trail through the park as a handy connection between Loxley Road (the school bus stop is at Loxley and Coleman Road) and Sea Terrace Road.  In 1996 local residents approached the regional district to upgrade the trail and install trail signs.
