A new aquatic climbing wall has been donated to the Oak Bay Recreation Centre by the Rotary Club of Oak Bay.

The unveiling of the new feature will take place during the Family Day Swim on Monday at 3 p.m.

“Climbing on the new wall will build confidence as it conquers fears, develops co-ordination and provides an opportunity to play which is an essential part of childhood,” said Jim Force, president of the Rotary Club of Oak Bay.

Force will be the first to try out the new climbing wall as he attempts to climb to the top to cut the ribbon.

All pool goers will then have the opportunity to climb the wall. The swim is from 3-5 p.m. and has a special price of $2 per admission.
