This seasonal water park is located along the Red Deer River 3.5 km north of 30 Avenue from 67 Street, within the Waskasoo Park system.

Discovery Canyon Park is a seasonal water park located beside RiverBend Golf and Recreation Area. It features a natural river-fed water pool, playground area, concession and washrooms. On a hot summer day enjoy bubbling pools of water, trickling rivulets and a spray pool at the bottom of the canyon.

Water is pumped up from the lake below and splashes and bubbles its way down grass and tree-lined riffles. Children of any age can follow the water, which is never deeper than 45cm (18″), on inflatable tubes. Bring your own, or rent one from the clubhouse.

Amenities include picnic tables and beach. 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 summer season, Discovery Canyon operates from Monday to Sunday from 9 am until 9 p.m. (weather dependent) Admission is free and visitors can rent tubes for $5 plus a $15 refundable deposit. The deposit will be returned when the tube is returned and we accept cash only. For more information, please call the RiverBend Golf and Recreation Area at 403-343-6341 ext 105.
