Amazing place for the whole family summer or winter. Lots for everyone of all ages to do and a great playground to keep the kids busy as well as paddleboats and huge water balls to ride in during the summer. A definite must see.

Something for the whole family. Great playground. Walking paths through the ponds are wide and easy to manage with a stroller, Hoover board, bikes or wheel chairs. Bathrooms and concession are a great bonus for the family outing too.

Lots of space to do a variety of activities year-round. The trails are in good condition and well connected to the web of trails throughout Red Deer; great toboggan hill and skating pond in winter. It's clean and safe. We always enjoy going!

This magnificent park is an oasis in and of itself. With water ponds that are public skating rinks in winter and fishing holes in summer, it is a terrific respite from hectic urban life. The trails are wonderful without severe climbs but stunning. Compliments to the City of Red Deer in keeping this entire area clean and wonderful to explore.... More
