About Red Deer

Red Deer is located in Central Alberta, midway between the major cities of Edmonton & Calgary and only 2.5 hours drive to Canmore/Banff.

Red Deer is home to 100,844 residents. My favourite thing about Red Deer is its’ extensive trail systems. Red Deer has more than 110 kilometres of soft and hard surface trails that traverse the Waskasoo Park system. Red Deer is family & dog friendly with two off leash dog parks, Three Mile Bend & Oxbow. Three Mile Bend is the larger of the two, and is a 55 hectare natural area that caters to a variety of outdoor activities. It is located on the North Bank Trail adjacent to the Red Deer River.

Red Deer is also home to “RDP” Red Deer Polytechnic, and is Red Deer’s largest post-secondary institution. RDP offers more than 80 programs, including degrees, certificates, diplomas and skilled trade programs.

Red Deer is rich in culture and hosts a variety of festivals, events and activities for everyone to enjoy. Like hockey? Don’t miss a Red Deer Rebels game!
