The Kerry Wood Nature Centre and surrounding grounds offer a unique wilderness escape in the heart of Red Deer. From wildflower gardens to wetland boardwalks, our natural spaces make a peaceful backdrop for your special day.
Kerry Wood Nature Centre
Not your usual hotel reception room! There are a variety of spaces in the Kerry Wood Nature Centre, including the Esther Hutchison Reading Room, Marjorie Wood Gallery, Discovery Room, and Theatre.
The Allen Bungalow sits across the parking lot from the Kerry Wood Nature Centre. The old parlour of this historic house is now the McCullough Room, a wheelchair-accessible public meeting spot with a washroom and kitchenette.
Outside the Allen Bungalow’s back door are the Busby Gardens & Gazebo. In the 1930s and 1940s, these gardens were locally famous and considered among the most beautiful in Red Deer. The heritage gardens have recently been brought back to their former luster and a beautiful cedar gazebo was added.
Festival Field is a fenced-off grassy area adjacent to the Allen Bungalow and Busby Gardens. During the summer months, a Marquee Tent is set up in Festival Field.
