Critical design features have been implemented in Capstone Park in Red Deer’s downtown core to make it more inclusive and accessible. This includes raised crossings and intersections that prioritize pedestrians, Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSI’s) that help the visually impaired, and wider sidewalks with separate bicycle facilities for general use.
