“It's great for YOUNG children”
Review of Discovery Canyon

Discovery Canyon
Ranked #1 of 15 Fun & Games in Red Deer
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 July 2014

The water level is so low that anyone over a certain weight cannot go down the rapids on a tube. I went thinking I could put my 3 year old on my lap and go down and sadly we were stuck in one spot and would hit the bottom when going down the slides. It is made for YOUNG children weighing a certain weight. It's very busy in the summer and there is not much water at the bottom for swimming/playing. Not as great as I thought it would be.

A free innertube 'river' for kids (and kids at heart) to enjoy. Inner tube rentals (you don't need if you have your own) are $4 or $5. We have taken many out-of-town guests there with a picnic lunch. An alternate suggestion (if extra child supervisors are there) is a round of golf at Riverbend Golf course. Attached to the golf course is a little par 3 course that is a good time waster.

Go in the summer when it's hot and slide down the lazy river. Rent or bring your own tube and have a blast. Picnic tables and bathrooms are provided as well as a sandy area for making sand castles.

This a great place for fun in the sun for all ages. Picnic area a creek for kids of all ages to tube down. Or just play in the water, and for the golfer a great golf course right there also

Nice place for kids to getaway and family. Children can ride innertubes down the watery slopes of this fun waterway. Needs more shaded areas (with trees) and shelters. Bathrooms need to be checked more often, but a must for family and friends!
