The City of Red Deer Parks section provides a diverse range of services to enhance the quality of life for citizens. We know how much Red Deerians love their parks and trails, and we’re proud to create and maintain the green spaces that make our city so special. With that work comes a responsibility to balance the needs of citizens with a respect for the biodiversity of our parks. To that end, we offer public education and opportunities for volunteers to get involved in keeping Red Deer ecosystems thriving.
Parks Landscape Services is responsible for all aspects of turf maintenance, planting, mowing, fertilization, irrigation and weed control of all the public green spaces in the city.
Parks Planning and Technical Services encompasses ecological services, planning for future parks, and the protection of our urban forest. This area is responsible for maintaining a balance between managing pests at tolerable levels for the well-being of all Red Deerians and caring for the natural environment.
Parks Amenities is responsible for the construction and maintenance of playgrounds, sports fields, trails and outdoor skating rinks throughout Red Deer. It includes Cemetery Services, which is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Red Deer and Alto Reste Cemeteries.
