Day Trips: Outdoor Waterslides in Blackfalds

Soak up the sun in Blackfalds, on a day trip that’s under two-hours away, or a fun stop on the way to Calgary with the kids, to surprise them (and make the road trip as easy as possible). The outdoor water slides at the Abbey Centre are one of the many fun things to do with kids in Blackfalds, and Red Deer area.

Admission for the family is $19.50 – a fantastic deal for a family afternoon or morning of fun, at the outdoor aquatic centre. It’s less expensive than a trip to the water park, and is on the way to many different destinations when you’re exploring Alberta.

Tips for visiting: 

  • Go early, a fun facility, you’re going to want to get there early to get a spot
  • Don’t forget the sunscreen. Both the pool, slides and spray park is outdoors
  • Try the new 10 ft climbing wall in the Junior pool

Features include: leisure pool with a zero depth entrance, the tots area, and 2 water slides. Lane swimmers and divers can take advantage of the 4-lane Jr. Olympic pool (25m) with a 1 metre diving board and all are welcome to relax in the 26-person hot tub.

Abbey Centre is located at 4500 Womacks Rd in Blackfalds, Alberta. See programming, hours and get more information about the facility at
