We visited the Kerry Wood Nature Centre with family while on a visit to Red Deer from our BC home. The Centre is associated with the Gaetz Lakes Bird Sanctuary, Alberta's oldest federal migratory bird sanctuary. The Centre itself is very nice, with a fine gift shop.

Kerry Wood Nature Center is a great getaway with out having to get away. It is connected to several of the best trails in Red Deer. It backs on to two oxbow lakes with a variety of wild life. It's new addition of a musical play ground along side a more than your average playground makes a great place for... 更多
We really enjoyed this place. After starting with a visit to the Interpretive Centre and it's nice little art gallery, we did the longer trail (4 km's return), but we could have chosen a shorter 1 km loop to the bird viewing blind on the lake. There's also a fun Harmony garden for kids to whack on things to make... 更多
I go there mostly to photograph the great variety of bird that make it their home. The trails are not very diffacult and there are plenty of spots to stop and enjoy nature.
Paved trails and some natural ones. Scenic ponds, bridges to cross and and picnic areas make this a nice place to spend an afternoon. Get a little exercise, have a picnic lunch. Comes with playgrounds for the kiddies too.
First stop by the centre and explore. Then leave the building and start your journey through the forest and wetlands areas. Breathtaking scenery around every bend. Great short walk/hike for the kids and parents who are not ready to tackle a mountain. Teeming with wildlife and interesting birds. You will not be disappointed!
We go here often with the grandkids or just ourselves. It is always a nice and quiet, relaxing place to visit. Take a stroll through the woods or check out the display on the inside. There is often an art show going on if you are interested in that...check ahead! Would recommend for all ages!
Great place to take the family for a nature walk or spend some time in their outdoor music park. You would be surprised how fun a pipe and flipflop can be.
