Meet me at the Park is being coordinated by The City of Red Deer in partnership with various local agencies and community associations. Experienced Recreation staff will be leading activities during the day and will be joined throughout the week by our community partners.

Why aren’t they coming to my neighbourhood?

Unfortunately we aren’t able to bring Meet me at the Park to every neighbourhood in the city, so we selected neighbourhoods based on several different factors. The program is being offered in partnership with the local Community Associations in those neighbourhoods. We encourage people to join the program closest to you.

  • Circuit courses, obstacle course
