BRIGHT AND INSIGHTFUL – The newest addition to downtown leisure, the central spray and play park in the northwest corner of Rotary Recreation Park on 47A Ave. and 48 St. is set to open on Aug. 13 with a grand opening event. The park not only boasts features that are unique to Red Deer such as a railway trestle to replicate the CP Rail bridge crossing the Red Deer River, it also contains a water reuse/filtration system. This means that the water used in the park will return to the park, and in turn save up to 30,000 gallons of water a day.
