There are many other great things to discover in Red Deer, such like the Maskepetoon Park, which is a 30-hectare parcel of land within the Waskasoo Park system. It is located along the city’s western boundary, by the Queen Elizabeth Highway (QE2) to the west. Maskepetoon is an ecologically valuable area containing many unique natural features including one of the most easterly-located tamarack fens in the province.
Red Deer prides itself on being current and achieving social landmarks. The new wave of outdoor gyms has taken off and Red Deer did not hesitate to participate.
