About Red Deer

Located in central Alberta, midway between the major cities of Edmonton and Calgary, Red Deer is a great location for those wanting the amenities of a large city but the sense of an uplifting and tight-knit community. 

Red Deer is a young, lively city with a wealth of events, attractions and culture. With a population just shy of 100,000, Red Deer is Alberta’s third-largest city. Home to a vast demographic, Red Deer really does have something for everyone. In the summer months, there is patio dining, festivals, markets and live music, downtown and in beautiful parks throughout the city. Playgrounds, walking trails, beaches, golf – you can have a new adventure every day. During the winter, there are a ton of reasons to get outside and enjoy the season – sleigh rides, ski trails, ice fishing, winter festivals and so much more. 
Whether you call Red Deer home year-round or only during the school year, you’ll be sure to find something – a hobby, an activity, or a community organization – that will help you feel like you belong here.
