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.

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.

Excellent presentation, especially for a young audience. Make a pre-cut birdhouse. Excellent value. Presenter knew how to keep the young audience's attention and patient with their questions. Will certainly enroll in further events there.

Thank you to the excellent staff for the outstanding job they have been doing over the years educating the population of Red Deer and beyond. The administration and staff should be very proud of themselves.

Nice walk through the park and great bird watching near the interpretive centre, along the pathways, and from the blind that stretches out over the lake. Bring binoculars and a camera and take your time looking for coots, teals, owls, and many other residents. This is a beautiful spot for nature lovers and photographers.

Check out what Mother Nature has done in Red Deer history inside the building and experience hands on activities. Outside there are trails among the wildlife such as deer and a multitude of birds.

A beautiful day in January, we took a stroll to the bird watching platform overlooking the area. Although we didn't see many birds this trip, it was still pleasant. Always enjoy coming, especially in the spring and summer, usually lots of birds and some wildlife around.
