The demolition and construction process for Discovery Canyon is set to begin this week (dependent on weather).

Discovery Canyon, located in the River Bend Golf and Recreation Area, is one of Red Deer’s most popular outdoor water features. The area closed for the 2016 season in order to complete extensive renovations to modernize, improve site safety and enhance the seasonal water park.

Re-opening in 2017, the water feature will see repair and renovation to the stream bed, improved access and accessibility, and expanded beach and playground areas.

River Bend Golf and Recreation Area will remain open to the public throughout construction, which will continue into the fall. Project updates and photos will be available online.

Visitors are reminded to obey posted signage and remain a safe distance away from the area during the construction.

Visit to learn more about some of the outdoor water recreation alternatives we have available such as Blue Grass Sod Farms Central Spray and Play, Bower Ponds, Kin Kanyon spray fountain, and the Recreation Centre outdoor pool.
