The thaw of spring will be here before you know it, with just over one month left of calendar winter days. As we enter the season of renewal we thought we'd reach out to those of you considering a move to Central Alberta, in particular to Red Deer. Many are pondering a career advancement in our energy resource rich region. Others are looking for the perfect place to start a family. Some are seeking a spot to retire and enjoy their latter years in a community that rejuvenates the mind, body, and soul. No matter the reason the four seasons of Red Deer offer enough incentive alone and have thus found their way into our most recent letter to you.
Why the Changing Seasons Make Red Deer the Place to Call Home:
The late winter thaw of Red Deer serves to create an unparalleled crispness in the spring air of the region. As the greenery returns to our landscape a wave of hidden outdoor recreation makes itself visible once again to residents while surprising those recently arrived. Spring in Red Deer marks the perfect time to explore the area while hiking our numerous TransCanada linked trails on foot or peddling while perched on a mountain bike through one of the best mountain bike parks in the country. The hot summer air has yet to arrive so you'll be able to enjoy our trails for hours on end. Spring in Red Deer also presents the perfect opportunity to try your hand (and rear) at horseback riding as our expansive hills host some of the most remarkable trolloping trails in Canada.
We won't lie it can get darn hot here in the summer months but once again this seasonal personality is a big part of what attracts households from across the country to Red Deer. Summer heat in our neck of the woods isn't just "bearable" it's downright celebrated as residents and visitors flock like seagulls to the many lake shores of the region. Communities like Gull Lake and Sylvan Lake become resort towns in the summer as water recreation enthusiasts dive on in. Sylvan Lake is also home to the best outdoor water park in the province. On those warm summer days where you don't feel like taking that few minute road trip you can enjoy the water scene all the same by spending that day at our iconic Bower Ponds where you can Stand-Up-Paddle, row, or simply dip your toes in to cool off between bouts of sun worship.
Fans of the harvest scene of fall will find no better place to live than right here in Red Deer Alberta. This agricultural rich region is known for its farmers markets and bounty of autumn produce and crafts doled out by long-time residents and new arrivals looking to make a name for themselves in the harvest scene. If decorative gourds and canning isn't your thing then autumn in Red Deer is bountiful on the other side of the spectrum. Those that place golf as an identifier in their lifestyle will love the links in Red Deer and early autumn is the perfect time to enjoy it. The tourists have retreated and the crisp fall air makes afternoon play on the green a Canadian paradise for those that prefer tee time to tea time.
"Winter Wonderland" is a descriptor often used for Red Deer during the season and for good reason. The slight hilled prairie landscape when coated in white, dotted with the glowing lights of homes, creates the seasonal greeting card look that makes our city so special. Aesthetics aside, access to winter recreation is abundant, drawing in snowboarders, skiers, ice skaters, snow-shoers, and more importantly your little snowman builders and snow angel makers. For households that love the season of winter as it should be, it gets no better than Red Deer Alberta.
