Red Deer, Alberta, is a beautiful place to live. It’s a particularly good choice for retiring seniors because it has the advantages of a town, but not the traffic, noise, or pollution of a big city. Here, below, are some of what we love about Red Deer.


Red Deer has a lot to offer. It is approximately half way by car between Edmonton and Calgary. That makes it easy to visit those cities or be visited by relatives and friends living there. Since Red Deer is not a big city, the cost of living will be somewhat less than in the big city. Red Deer still has a small town feel with rural Alberta very close by.


Red Deer, Alberta has some beautiful parks and lies on the banks of the Red Deer River. It is easy to find green areas to walk, relax, and enjoy the fresh air. There are ponds offering winter and summer fishing, and no limit to outdoor activities.


In addition to the beautiful outdoors, there is also plenty of culture available to those living in Red Deer including the Red Deer Symphony Orchestra, several museums and art galleries, live theatre, and several options for higher education. The town also continues to become more and more eco-conscious and green with a number of local initiatives.
