Cost and Benefit Analysis

The cost and benefit analysis of this project is highly depended on the number of visitors, its operations and management effectiveness and government support. The financial benefits expected from this project are the profits earned from the sales of passes, membership cards, rents from refreshment stall owners and car parking slots. These profits will be calculated after deducting the expenses incurred for all the operations and maintenance of the park. The investors will also be given the share of their profits. The social benefits for the community will be having a place where they could meet each other, could have quality time with family and could engage in physical activities. Hence, overall the social benefit is the health care of the community. Another intangible benefit is the increased number of natural beauty and freshness. These benefits are mostly considered as long term benefits. Once the park is able to attract people, the number of visitors will increase gradually.

On the other hand, the major cost of the project is incurred in the beginning, during the construction of the park. It’s more of a onetime huge investment. The basic cost of the park is its construction and installation of recreational activities equipments.

The estimated cost for the project is $ 515,500.00 which will be collected from investors and sponsors. However, efficient management will be carried to ensure minimum cost and to maintain the budget of the plan.
