This is an oasis in the middle of Red Deer. The hike through Kerry Wood Nature Centre is the way to see all the beautiful scenery and wildlife. It is serene and a great place to relax.

You don't have to be a tree hugger to appreciate and learn from this place. Not only will you learn, but you will find this natural oasis on the edge of Red Deer a relaxing and invigorating place. Good for families with kids who like to ask questions.

Always see tonnes of wildlife, ducks, geese, frogs (or toads, not sure how to tell). Taken some lovely photos there and I know many people enjoy Kerry Wood Nature Centre as a wonderful source of local wildlife information. Beautiful views.

Beautiful. Lots to explore and many walking trails. Go to the museum also and explore the area. It is by donation, so great for the family or just friends for an afternoon. Check out the website because they sometimes have special activities happening. Lots of fun for the thrifty traveler.

A bit of quiet wilderness (save twittering birds) in middle of the city. Lots of critters, feathered, six-legged and if luvky, four-legged. Plenty of plant species. Nice and inviting visitor's centre with friendly and knowledgable staff. Nice gift shop. Comfortable 4 km light hike / walk on mainly well maintained shale path with some short paved sections; several sections with... More

Kerry Wood Nature Centre is a great place to visit with the whole family. They have some exhibits inside of the building that tell about the wildlife in Alberta and good washroom facilities. Around the building there are several picnic tables and a small playground for children. There were two owls perched in the trees just outside the building the... More

Kerry Wood Nature Centre is a great place to take children or to just visit for a stroll along the nature trail or to spend some time at the bird watching blind. The interactive displays and the interpretive presentations will certainly provide insight into the Red Deer River valley and the species that inhabit it.

Lots of outside activities for the young ones including exploring and playing on interactive apparatus. there is also a great hike/walk through the 'wilderness within the city'. be cautious you are likely to see moose, deer and beaver along the way.
