The project was funded with the $2 million Parks and Recreational bonds approved by voters in the 2013 Bond Referendum. An additional $350,000 was provided by a Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) grant.
The upgraded park opened to the community in August 2019.
Only the splash pad and the playground area are maintained by the City of Sanford. Lee County continues to maintain the park's greenway, fitness and walking trail, existing covered shelter, uncovered picnic area, and gazebo.
