A new state of the art YMCA/YWCA Aquatic Centre will be a welcome addition to the existing world class recreational facilities available within the community. At a ground breaking ceremony at the site on Monday, January 20 attended by more than 100 people, Mayor Stew Young said the new facility is another example of Langford Council's continuing commitment to provide the best in recreation for the residents of today and far into the future.

”The YMCA/YWCA has a long history of offering great recreational opportunities and services for families and people of all ages in Victoria and throughout Canada, “ Mayor Young said.

Construction of the new centre, to be located in Westhills near City Centre Park, is the result of a partnership with the City of Langford, the YMCA/YWCA of Greater Victoria and Westhills. The multi-purpose facility, to be completed in early 2016, will feature an aquatic centre that includes a lap pool, lazy river, warm water therapy pool, wave pool and two waterslides, as well as a gymnasium, youth centre, health and fitness facility and daycare centre.

Ryan McKenzie, manager of Westhills, applauded Langford's efforts to create the best in recreation at City Centre Park, and said Westhills was proud to partner with Langford and the YMCA/YWCA on such a significant project.

Sybil Verch, chair of the YMCA/YWCA board, said there is a lot of excitement regarding the new aquatic centre, and the facility will be a great new opportunity to provide programs and services that help build healthy communities.

Citing the success of Rugby Canada's involvement with the City of Langford, Mayor Young said the new aquatic centre will be a key part of new recreation initiatives as Langford Council moves forward.
