Bower Ponds has an amazing playground, fun water activities, and a concession. You can follow the trails and watch the geese, or bring your kid for some fun summer and winter activities.

While enjoying Red Deers excellent cycling/pathway system , we came to this beautifully maintained park. We were early in the morning, but could see how fun it would be to take one of the boats out on the water. Lovely, lovely, place.

Because they are part of the Parks department, you will have to get permission to do this. There is heritage buildings on the site and they may want to keep all things like this away.
