It was a hard winter, lots of snow, so writing a thorough review might be a challenge. The trails that were navigable were easy to walk down for two people and afforded some beautiful views of the parkland. The boardwalk to the observation deck was clear and had safe views of the marshland for all ages and heights. The Centre... More

We have had the opportunity to visit this centre every year and experienced many things, from the space exhibition to the wildlife awareness. As a family we have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect that this centre has to offer. The walking paths alone are extensive and definitely worth taking in. A great family outing!

We have gone to the centre numerous times and have been impressed with the facility each time. The highlight is definately the preserve in behind.

This is a great place to visit for the whole family. There is lots to do for all ages. Learn all about the great outdoors with all your senses. There is also a bird sanctuary with bird look outs that you can walk around or cross country ski if your here in the winter.

Bower Ponds provides a great area for walking in with connections to much longer trails for those who want more of a hike. Great place for families.

the trails are great! The center is a low medium. Lots of pictures and writings But the staff are very few. Some animals but they are into Nature and not much else.

This walk around area is very well maintained, and has beautiful scenery to look at for every turn. I suggest this to anyone visiting Red Deer.
