Three Mile Bend recreation area and off-leash dog park will be closed for maintenance tonight and Wednesday night.

The park will close at 9:30 p.m. tonight and Wednesday night and reopen the following mornings at 7 a.m.

The closure will allow the City of Red Deer and contractors to perform maintenance.

“Three Mile Bend Recreation Area is one of our busiest parks in the city,” said Trevor Poth, parks superintendant.

The city wants to ensure the maintenance occurs while the park is closed for the safety of off-leash dogs, Poth said.

During the maintenance period, commissionaires will be at the park entrance to redirect users.

Park users are reminded to keep pets on a leash when it nears 9 p.m. and be aware of any equipment that might be moving into the area.

The park reopens for normal use on Thursday 7 a.m.
