Super farm for u-pick strawberries or pumpkins. They also sell by the case- just give them a heads up that your coming. Stop into our picturesque, renovated 1940's barn during your visit for tasty treats, fabulous gifts, and farm fresh produce! Their general store is open from July to October and boasts a great selection of old fashioned preserves, syrups, jams, and other great jar goods! They also have hand-dipped caramel apples, ice cream, and fresh baked goods!

Okay, so this is the romantic/propose-your-love restaurant. Fine music, candles, and DELECTIBLE food. A little pricy but worth it for that special night. Good idea to make a reservation as they close at 9 pm.

Great couples escape for a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Heritage Ranch- then back for dinner. A bit pricey but it's a unique experience to celebrate your special occasion.

Amazing kids outdoor play center with a soft black cushion floor. Can rent paddle boats. In summer they also have those inflatable clear plastic balls that one person goes in on the water and they try to get around- much like a gerbil in a play ball. Beautiful trail and Walk along the Red Deer River. You can walk all the way to Heritage Ranch. You'll go over a lovely pedestrian bridge over the Red Deer River and through the forested trail.s Geese and ducks in season. Skating on the pond in the winter all day and in the evening.

It's a little outdoor oasis hidden within the city. Great place to take the children for an inexpensive day of fun. 5 dollar tube rentals and a snack shack where they take cash and debit. Or bring your own tubes and food. But it's highly recommended that if you are planning to spend the day , go early so you can get a good spot. Great fun to go tubing down the falls and run back up again to do it all over.

Beautiful biking and walking paths. If you want a good 30km bike ride I'd start here, or at Three Mile Bend and follow the trails to Bower Ponds, then Heritage Ranch and back again. Wonderful sights and smells on this paved path along the Red Deer River and through trees.

This sandy beach is about 25 minutes away. The water is shallow for a long ways out- which is perfect if your watching little children. It’s much less busy than Sylvan Lake beach. Also, you can park close to the beach and there’s a concession stand.

Getting Around
In the winter pick an all wheel drive, or four wheel drive vehicle so you don't have any troubles in the snow on my country road.

One of my local guests suggested my guidebook should include this establishment. She said, "They are hands down the best and offer the best professionally handmade drink in town. They craft them as an art, not just slap it together like most places." And as Im not familiar with the night life scene I thought I'd pass it along to those who are. BTW- it wants to list as "To the Lost" but the name is actually, "Occams Razor".
