Accessibility NotesVisiting the Gallery: The main entrance to Legacy is at street level and there are no steps or gaps to enter the main gallery, inner gallery or washrooms. The main entrance has two sets of heavy doors with push buttons. There are additional doors without push buttons to the inner gallery. There is ample space to maneuver a mobility device without any sharp turns.

Washrooms: Legacy has two single-stall, gender inclusive washrooms. Both of these washrooms have manual doors and only one provides ample space for mobility devices. The bathrooms are equipped with support bars but the depth of the sink and door handle style may be challenging for some patrons. Unfortunately, we don’t have a change table at this time.
Parking NotesThere is metered street parking around Legacy Downtown. The Bastion Square parkade is the closest municipal parkade and is located approximately two blocks away on Yates Street.
