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

This little gem is right in the heart of the city and its beautiful! Paved walking paths are wonderful and connect to other areas of Red Deer, and there are reasonably priced water activities available as well. There is also an indoor area with activities and a concession.

Awesome local park that always provides a nice visit. A walking path goes around the entire pond, at least a 45 min walk for the whole loop. They offer a few different activities in the summer, paddle boats, ect. During the winter the pond freezes over, and you are able to rent or bring your own skates. There is also... More

If you want to relax outside, you need to come here. Imagine you resting your head near a pond, which was just what I did when I was here. The only issue was the people being noisy, but you can till just relax or do paddle boating, which was really fun.

Spent a couple of hours with grandkids walking and enjoying the playground. Pond was great for trying out a remote control boat.

From early spring through to the fall you can share your hike around the scenic Bower Ponds with several families of Canada Geese who return each year to raise their goslings. There are many walking trails around the ponds, an amphitheatre for musicians and performers, and paddle boats and canoes for the water enthusiasts. The historic Cronquist House is also... More
