The City of Red Deer and River Bend Golf and Recreation Society made the decision for Discovery Canyon to remain closed in 2020, based on recommendations from Alberta Health Services.

Tubes sizes can only be between 30 inches to 50 inches for the ride. If they are any larger you may be asked to remove them from the river by staff.
Seasonal opening and closing dates depend on weather conditions. The water park usually opens for the summer season during the first weeks of June and closes after the September long weekend (the first weekend in September). Please check back soon for the exact opening dates.
There are no lifeguards on duty, and this facility is to be used at your own risk. During the season, Discovery Canyon operates from Monday to Sunday from 11am until 7p.m. (weather dependent)
Admission is free and visitors can rent tubes but you must have photo ID for the rental. The ID will be returned when the tube is returned.
We accept cash, debit, and credit cards only.
On a hot sunny day our parking lot quickly hits capacity with golfers and park users. We try and maintain accessibility for everyone but lets face it...our parking availability can be a mess.
