If an outdoor facility opened in the durham regiona area, and it offered things like rock climbing, caving and kayaking – both boats, accessories as well as a pool dedicated to boats for testing, practice, etc……. would you use it?
Q – Are you asking about whether we would use an artificial river with features, or more of a pond/pool for practicing skills? There is an indoor climbing wall in Ajax, and Lakeridge has outdoor climbing facilities (fairly rudimentary). If it were near the new University (UOIT), I could see using it occasionally, although a winterized facility would get a lot more use. Nice to hone some skills when the real thing is not available without a flight being involved. In the warmer season you are competing with the real thing.
