Things to see

Gracing the lake’s western shore, Sylvan Lake Provincial Park is a lush and leafy natural haven where visitors come to relax and play. Just north of town, tree shaded picnic tables and a play area offer some picturesque respite, whilst the 1 mile long sandy beach is the park’s biggest draw. Attracting swimmers, sun worshippers, water sports enthusiasts, and fishers, the beach also hosts volleyball tournaments. Come winter when the lake freezes over, activities such as ice fishing and ice skating take over from the summer fun. On the lake’s south shore, Sylvan Lake Marina is another slice of idyll. Bordered by grassy banks and quaint weatherboard homes, yachts and sailboats bob gently on the rippling water. For family-friendly hijinks, look no further than Lakeside Go Karts and Mini-Golf. With its whimsical obstacles and terrain elevations the mini-golf course offers fun, yet challenging play, whilst white knuckle kart racing comes in colorful style too.
