New Galbraith pedestrian bridge opens today

(Red Deer, Alberta)

The new Galbraith pedestrian bridge opens today after the old bridge was removed in September.

A new bridge was required to improve safety for pedestrians, and crews began constructing the new structure earlier this fall. All pathways in the park are now open and the detours are no longer in effect.

Galbraith Park is one of three small parks along Waskasoo Creek to the south east of downtown, off Waskasoo Crescent. The pedestrian bridge takes path users across the Waskasoo Creek near where the creek enters the Red Deer River and connects to the pathway from Kerry Wood Nature Centre.
