Oak Bay Parks, Recreation and Culture is very excited to announce the unveiling of four new pianos in public spaces painted by local artists. This is the third year Recreation Oak Bay has installed pianos outdoors for the public to play during the summer. Pianos are available to be played by anyone from 10am to dusk daily, when the pianos will be covered overnight. The pianos will be up until September 5, 2016.

Artists Jonathan Gleed, Peter van Giesen, Dorothy Jarvis and Robert Amos have painted the pop-up pianos that will be installed at Turkey Head, Loon Bay Park, Cattle Point and Estevan Village. A public tour of the pianos will take place on Saturday July 9, leaving Oak Bay Municipal Hall at 10:30am. A bus is available for those who need transportation assistance on a first come, first served basis. The bus is not wheelchair accessible, but can accommodate walkers. The public is welcome to bike, bus or drive to the locations, where local professional musicians will play for those in attendance.
