“Family friendly enviroment!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We love Bower Ponds and would reccomend it to traveler's who have never experienced it. One can bike, canoe, paddle boat, or even go in a clear ball and balance on the water. All the bike paths are all connected through out the city a real bonus! You can fish as well there. There is the historical Conquest House on the grounds so one can experience a part of the history of Red Deer, One can have tea and scones or book for special occasions. Highly recommended!

“Great walking/ biking paths!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Bower Ponds is beside downtown Red Deer, and has pathways that lead along the river in both directions. It is a beautiful place to visit for a meander or a picnic. Every Sunday in the summer there is free outdoor music! There is a concession and rental paddle boats. The kids play ground is excellent! There is goose crap everywhere!!!! And if its a beautiful day there is most likely a lot of other people visiting too but it's nice that your leashed Dog can visit with you!

“Red Deer Landmark”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Bower ponds is a truly peaceful place to experience nature inside the city. The ponds are quite large and offer skating in the winter and non-motorized boating in the summer. Nature is never far when you are at the ponds as various water fowl call the ponds home in the summer and you may even get to see a moose or deer grazing in the summer.

“Relax”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Good place to head down and rollerblade, walk and just hang out. The city has events here once in a while.
