Red Deer in Alberta.
Red Deer is a city in Central Alberta, Canada. It is located near the midpoint of the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor and is surrounded by Red Deer County. Red Deer is Alberta's third most populous city—after Calgary and Edmonton. The city is located in aspen parkland, a region of rolling hills that is subject to oil, grain, and cattle production. Red Deer is a centre for oil and agriculture distribution, and the surrounding region is a major centre for petrochemical production.
The park runs right from the outskirts in the south west to the north east and through the heart of the city. It gives Red Deer its alternate name of "Park City". Over 80 km (50 mi.) of multi-use trails permit biking, rollerblading, horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and walking. Home to many birds and wild life, this unspoiled river valley park is well-loved, well used and undoubtedly a place of peace and beauty.
The park has a number of attractions including:
Bower Ponds and Cronquist Heritage Centre
Great Chief (Maskepetoon) Park
Great Chief Athletic Park
Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary
Three Mile Bend
Kiwanis Picnic Park
Great West Adventure Park and BMX track
