A Rotary donation will help save trees and plants in Uplands Park.

Early this year the Friends of Uplands Park approached the Rotary Club of Oak Bay asking if its members would agree to donate $3,000 for two bicycle racks for the park.

Having bicycle racks at the entrance of Uplands Park will reduce the number of bicycles chained to trees, as bicycles are not permitted in the park.

One rack is located at the Dorset Road/Beach Drive intersection and the other at the southern entrance to Cattle Point.

The racks were officially unveiled on Nov. 4, Tree Appreciation Day, by Rotary Club of Oak Bay’s President Joan Peggs and other club members.
