“Loads of Family Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We had a blast at Bower Ponds! The grounds were beautiful and the pedal boats were fun. The water balls were a blast and we all tried them out including my 5 year old. I wish that we had more time to spend here so that we could check everything out.

“A place to take out of town guests!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Having family from out of town, we often bring our visitors here. It's a beautiful walk, has an excellent playground, great skating, and the Bard on Bower is a summer highlight for us! If you are a biker or walker, there are trails that connect to this area, and you can go much further down the trail for a walk or ride. Take the time to visit, it's beautiful!

“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Wonderful park to take the family or just yourself summer, spring winter fall! Pathways to go for a stroll and playgrounds for,the kids. Small eating bar with the usual park, zoo type fare. Walking paths lead you onto the trail system that follows the Red Deer River. No swimming access. Skate, paddle or take you dog on lease (poop bags on board of course!). Really love this place.

“A great outing for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The little ones in your family will burn energy at the playground or running on the trails. There is often free entertainment on the stage so you may want to check out the schedule. If you're taking in the talent you may want to bring a chair or blanket to sit on. There are pedal boats and canoes for rent. Conquirst House offers a light lunch for a cost.

“Best place for a Picnic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

The new addition of water balls is really cool, the park is good and the picnic area down the road is great for a family get together!
