Bouldering features are being installed in Boitanio Park after months of work thanks to the Williams Lake Daybreak Rotary Club.
Andrew Sandberg managed the project for the club, planning the fun climbing features for the community and fundraising the over $130,000 to make it happen. Funds came from businesses and community members who supported the project.
Sandberg was overseeing the installation of the park features which will still require installation of a curb, more gravel and a final seven inches of rubber mat to be able to open the bouldering park features. The location for the bouldering park was not what Sandberg had originally hoped for but the final choice was growing on him.
Sandberg said while he hasn’t tried climbing himself, he’s going to have to now.
Spruce Lee Construction was doing the work to install the pieces, which had to be lifted into place and were being bolted to the concrete using heavy steel frame supports.
Sandberg said the goal is to have the bouldering park open for the July 1 events which will include Canada Day celebrations.
