    This is busy place. Free access. Went on a Thursday morning in August and there were a lot of families already there. Not a lot of picnic tables, but space for a blanket. Peddle boats for rent. Lots of paved walking paths around the ponds. Good for strollers. Too many people for a lot of birds. Saw geese, mallards, goldeneye. This seems to be the most populated park in the Red Deer park network.

    Great place for a trail run or hike with my kids. We go so often! The nature playground is awesome. And the Centre has lots of activities that bring not only awareness of ways to be more 'green' but doing something about them!

    Great fun for families young and old. The grounds are clean. Water is also clean. Lazy river going down easy rapids. The playground is new and very different from the usual play structure. Washroom facilities available. Great place. All we need is more hot weather!

    Went we for date night and absolutely loved the sleigh ride. The driver was fantastic and the ride with the Christmas lights was fun. Steak was incredible in the five course meal

    Three of us went there this morning to have a look around. Lots of booths but windy and cold while there. I bought a tasty beef shishkabob for $3.50. Tasted great. Also bought a coffee from another seller. Good place to buy vegetables, etc. Parking was $2.

    This park has many varieties of colourful blooming flowers ar this time of year. What also impressed me was that there were 5 employees scattered throughout the part tending the flower beds to make them fresh looking.

    I took my two young boys (2 & 5), there for a morning. They loved the games and activities. My 5 year old could have spent all day playing the old video games. My 2 year old had a shorter attention span but didn't run out of displays to interact with. Its definitely worth a visit.

    I have been here many times as a classroom teacher on a field trip with my students an as a grandma with my granddaughter. For school kids there is so much to be learned, the programs offered are great! The live animals are a treat too especially for city kids who usually on't get to see these animals.

    There are lots of trails and two parks. It's a nice place to go during autumn and fall or the summer. Get out of your house for a bit :)

    This lovely historic house is a unique gem in our city. The food is fresh, well prepared and is usually served in a timely manner. It's always fun to find out which china it is served with.

    We stopped here to see the particular artist featured in the Art Gallery. Also enjoyed learning about the history of Red Deer and area. Wonderful spot for local artists to have their work shown.

    We were staying with family who have a young yellow lab. It is a well laid out dog walk/run. We let her go once inside and we walk along the paths at our own pace while she ran along or with other dogs. Great place in the city to bring your dog.
