Red Deer County Community Services Vision
Quality of life and community well-being are advanced through responsive, innovative, and collaborative policies, facilities, services, and programs that make Red Deer County a great place to live, work, and grow.
Red Deer County currently provides per capita funding to seven local Recreation and Culture Boards, to promote a wide range of recreation and culture services in rural areas. Each Division Recreation and Culture Board is provided with funding and is responsible for providing access to recreation and culture opportunities for residents within their Division.
There’s a new way to register for recreation programs or to book the Springbrook Ball Diamonds!
