Activity Guide

What is the Activity Guide?

The guide is typically published in March, August and December of each year. The Guide contains information about aquatics, arts and culture, clubs, family and community, fitness and wellness, and sports programs offered throughout the city including descriptions of the classes, schedules, locations, and prices.

Will there be an Activity Guide produced this fall?

Due to the ongoing uncertainly regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and unknown health restrictions that may be in place over the coming months, we have made the difficult decision to suspend the production and print of the Activity Guide for fall 2020.

Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot determine a concrete timeline or a definite plan as to what programming will look like in our facilities this fall. The Activity Guide requires months of lead-time to create each edition, time that we do not have.

How will we deliver program information for the fall?

City-lead programming will be available online through Look ’n Book and My Activity Guide. Through Look ’n Book, residents can browse program options and register through the same platform while the My Activity Guide tool gives residents the opportunity to build their own customized Activity Guide that can be bookmarked, saved and printed. These tools provide the most current and up-to-date information. We are currently researching and testing ways to include community-led programming via those channels.

How do I access community-led program information?

Contact the provider of your community-led program of choice. Call them, visit them on social media or website to access information. We are currently researching and testing ways to include community-lead programming via Look ‘n Book and My Activity Guide.

Will you be producing a winter Activity Guide?

The COVID-19 pandemic has encouraged us to evaluate the Activity Guide and how we deliver both City-lead and community-lead program information to Red Deerians. We are currently reviewing all possible options and will share more information when it becomes available.
