Redwater is home to some of the best outdoor amenities in all of Alberta—which also makes it a fantastic city to visit with your dog! Sprawling, laid back, and scenic, Redwater offers a bounty of terrain that both you and your furry best friend will love to explore and continue to discover. Keep reading for our top picks to roam.

Centennial Park 

Centennial Park is centrally located and expansive, providing plenty of grassy ground for you and your dog to cover. For energetic dogs, it’s a great place to throw a ball, play fetch, and run around. For slower paced pooches, it’s also ideal for a leisurely stroll. 

Redwater Provincial Recreation Area

Home to some of the largest sand dunes in the region, Redwater Provincial Recreation Area is a popular destination for ATV riding. The park is also filled with beautiful nature trails that wind through the woods, making it a top spot to walk your dog, bird watch, and just take in the natural beauty of the area.  

West River’s Edge Dog Park 

Perfect for a day trip, West River’s Edge Dog Park is located just over 30 minutes away in nearby Fort Saskatchewan. Big, beautiful, and right on the water bank, it’s one of the most gorgeous parks in the area and great for dogs who like to splash in the water. There’s even a doggy playground, for those who are working on their agility skills!

Whether you are in Redwater to see some old friends or to go on an adventure, there are plenty of fun activities you could take up while staying in this beautiful city that would keep you engaged and in the fall spirit. 

Here are the top activities we recommend taking part in while staying in Redwater:



Going fishing may not be the first activity that comes to people’s mind when thinking of what to do in Redwater. But believe it or not, Redwater is actually home to a couple of good bodies of water that you can go fishing in.

Whether it’s going to the Sturgeon River to catch some pike and burbot, or to the Redwater River to pick up some Northern Pikes and Walleye, it can be good to take a step back, grab your fishing gear, and be immersed in the beautiful fall atmosphere for a day or two.



What better way to stay in the fall spirit than to be walking around the city and witnessing up close and in person the beautiful transition into the new season.

Centennial Park is stunning at this time of year as the greens of summer make way to the fiery fall foliage. Enjoy wandering around Redwater's numerous shops and neighbourhoods to get you in the fall spirit.



If sharpening up your golf skills or trying out a new sport sounds intriguing, then you should head on over to Redwater’s Community Golf Club.

This golf club is a marquee attraction in this city. It’s nine-hole course surrounded by beautiful greens make it a place you have to on the top of your to-do list.


If you want to make the most of the fall season, plan your trip and enjoy comfortable accommodations and quality amenities at Paradise Inn & Suites Redwater. Conveniently located near the town's best fall attractions.

Redwater is home to magnificent greens, trails, golf courses, and more features and amenities. But did you know that Redwater is also relatively close to a handful of magnificent streams of water where one can go fishing in?

Here are two spots that you might like:


Approximately 15 minutes away from the Paradise Inn hotel is the beautiful Redwater river. Here you might catch a handful of different types of fish including Northern Pikes, Walleye, Goldeye, and many more. The river is also very close to the Redwater Provincial Recreation Area which also has plenty of other fun activities one could take up.


If you want to catch other kinds of fish including pike, perch, and burbot then checking out the Sturgeon river should definitely be at the top of your fishing to-do list. This 260km stream of water’s mouth is the North Saskatchewan River and is approximately a 25-30-minute drive from the Redwater Paradise Inn. 

After finishing a long day of catching fish, you could go head on over to the Vinca Bridge and take in the tremendous view of this amazing river.

During this unprecedented pandemic where many of us can be very stressed or burned out from all that is going on in our day to day lives, sometimes it can be good to take a step back, grab your fishing gear, and be immersed in nature for a day or two.

If getting away sounds like the perfect idea, then book your stay at the Paradise Inn & Suites Redwater.  We offer comfortable accommodations and quality amenities for your stay. 


If you decide to go fish in one of these areas, please ensure that you are abiding by and participating in all COVID-19 safety procedures and precautions brought to you by Paradise Inn & Suites, and the Federal and Provincial governments in order to make sure that we can all continue to go fishing safely.

The coronavirus crisis is, of course, a serious matter, and we should all endeavour to act responsibly during these testing times. However, it’s not as if all fun has to cease entirely. There are plenty of ways you can have fun, even though public gatherings will be cancelled. And that includes when you’re travelling. If you and your family find yourself in a hotel room with nowhere to go, then try one of the activities outlined below.

Play games

If you’ve got an open evening to enjoy, then why not look at playing some card games? There are plenty of family-friendly games you could play, or you can pick up a deck of a game like Uno, and have some simple and childish fun. If you’re thinking ahead and driving to the hotel, then a board game can also provide many hours of fun.

Tell stories

Stories connect us to the past and lay a foundation for the future. How much do your kids really know about the life you used to lead, or the lives of your parents and other family members? When you’ve got nowhere to be, telling each other tales of days gone by can be fun for everyone in your clan.

Watch something

If you were at home, you’d spend time watching television or movies all together. So why not do it when you’re all in lockdown? Take a flick through, and you’ll surely find something that everyone wants to watch. 

If you’re going to ride out lockdown, then do so at the best hotel in Redwater. At the Paradise Inn & Suites Redwater, you’ll have everything you need to have a good time with your family. All of our comfortable accommodations - which include traditional rooms and large suites -- include a large television, kitchen amenities, and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi
