Capstone invites Red Deerians to enjoy new community spaces

Sunday June 20, Red Deerians can enjoy a fantastic Father’s Day in Capstone – Red Deer’s newest riverside community.

Stroll with your family down Riverwalk, where you can view a special Father’s Day mural by local chalk artist Haley Abrahamsz, on display all week (weather dependent). Food trucks will be in Canada 150 Square from 11 a.m.–to 7 p.m., providing outdoor dining choices in addition to the many food and beverage options already located in Capstone. The first 200 customers will also receive a complimentary soda coupon for Troubled Monk’s delicious line of sodas. You may even see Spandy Andy dancing his way through Capstone.

“For the next several months, as restrictions ease, our team will be focused on creating events that showcase the many features and amenities that the Capstone community has to offer, in a way that feels comfortable and safe for Red Deerians to attend”, says John Sennema, Manager of Land and Economic Development at The City of Red Deer. “This includes events that happen over a period of several weeks so that people can attend without encountering large crowds, and installations that are spread out over the community.”

Future activities in 2021 include scavenger hunts, food truck festivals, outdoor recreation classes, and art installations. “Activating these spaces is a critical step in the adoption of the neighbourhood vision, especially as this master-planned community evolves into an active, modern community” explains Project Manager Cory Edinga.

Last year The City of Red Deer conducted extensive research on the wants and needs of the future resident of Capstone – dubbed the ‘Cap-Citizen’. These future residents are curious, active types, who are social, and community minded. Events and activations will be planned with their needs and wants in mind.
