It’s a great place. We always walk there with kids and friends. Good place to meet some people from different countries and communicate with them.

Drove here this morning to walk the trails and see the sights. Quite a few people at the ponds today as the weather is nice.

Love this park as a little escape for walking and biking. Lovely scenery, good mix of terrain, plenty of places to stop and sit if you wish.

Fantastic park in the middle of Red Deer. Try the Conquist house in the middle of the park for a great lunch. The view from this historic house is something you need to experience.

A picnic, floating on the water, tea in an historical tea house? You can find it all at Bower Ponds and much more. It is a delightful way to get that out of town feeling right in the middle of the city.

I go to Bower Ponds now & then to walk around & enjoy the fresh air no matter what season. The paddle boats are nice to get on the water. There's a variety of things to see & do depending on the season. Wildlife everywhere....More

Nice area to walk and relax. It’s suitable for persons who require wheelchairs and scooters. The parking areas make it difficult to know that there are walking paths nearby.
