Please note the walking trail on top of the lazy river is temporarily closed after an annual inspection found structural deficiencies on the bridge portion of the trail. In the spring of 2023, the bridge was removed and will be replaced in the fall of 2023. There are signs in place to notify pedestrians and Discovery Canyon water park users of the closure. The trail closure and bridge removal will not impact Discovery Canyon operations; however, guests are reminded to use caution and stay away from the closed area and children must be supervised at all times.
Discovery Canyon is located along the Red Deer River, 3.5 km north of the 30 Avenue and 67 Street roundabout in the River Bend Golf and Recreation Area.
