Red Deer is located in central Alberta, midway between Calgary and the Edmonton Corridor. With a population of just over 100.000, it is the county’s third most populous city and home to many people working in the thriving oil and logging industry in the surrounding hills. But Red Deer also serves as a popular base for people visiting the beautiful Canadian Badlands, the mountainous David Thompson Country, and a number of nearby, picturesque towns and villages.
