On our way home last week we stopped in to take a look at some of the progress on Discovery Canyon in Red Deer.
Set to open tentatively on June 1st, Discovery Canyon was closed for the 2016 summer season for significant maintenance and upgrading work to improve safety and accessibility which included:
- Replacing the stream bed
- Improving access to lower portion of the stream
- Enhancing safety measures
- Improving accessibility
- Upgrading the main entry walkway
- Enhancing the beach and playground areas
Great for children of any age the water is never deeper than 45cm (18″), on inflatable tubes and there is a spray pool at the bottom. Bring your own tube or rent one for $5 with a $15 deposit!
Discovery Canyon is located at 3800 River Bend Drive, Red Deer, Alberta. To stay updated on construction and when the official opening will be, check out the River Bend Golf Course & Recreation Area website.
