Fort Normandeau

Located in The City of Red Deer, on the south bank of the Red Deer River, the Kerry Wood Nature  Centre is Central Alberta's year-round destination for environmental education. Visit the Nature Centre for hands-on natural history interpretation, interactive exhibits, unique books or gift ideas, and so much more.  The Nature Centre is the hub of Red Deer's Waskasoo Park Trail System; a starting point for anyone looking to delve into their natural surroundings and local wild spaces. 
  The Fort Normandeau park and Interpretive Centre are open to the public from May to October each year. During our opening season Fort Normandeau is a great place to explore Red Deer's rich cultural history, celebrating modern Red Deer's three founding cultures; the Blackfoot and Cree people, the Metis, and European settlers.
