This vibrant lakeside community has a stunning mix of natural beauty and a lifestyle with many young, active families. And joining it all together are a range of recreational activities that are perfect for the whole family.
The Wild Rapids Waterslide Park offers fun for the whole family. The streets are lined with shops, boutiques, and gourmet restaurants to suit any taste. The annual Jazz On The Lake brings world-class musicians to the small community.
But without a doubt, the central attraction in Sylvan Lake, what brings tourists from across the province and around the world back to the town year after year, is the pristine beauty of the lake itself. Sylvan Lake is a long stretch of unspoiled fresh water wrapped in warm yellow sandy beaches. The beach also offers a range of water activities. Grab a towel and relax on the beach, or take a cool dip in the refreshing waters of the lake. If fishing is your thing, the lake’s deep waters are perfect for pike, perch, and walleye.
Or, if you’re feeling a bit more ambitious, you can get out on the water by renting one of a range of water vessels. Rental spots line Lakeshore Drive, where you can pick up a canoe, a sailing boat, a paddle boat, or, if you feel the need for speed, why not a jet ski?
Jet skiing in Sylvan Lake lets you feel the wind in your hair and the sun on your back as you whip around on the lake waters. Rent two and bring a friend with you to race around or just have a bit of fun. Jet ski’s in Sylvan Lake are a great way to fish too. They let you get to all the best hidden spots, even ones too far away to paddle or swim to. And if one spot isn’t working for you, just rev up the motor and find somewhere else.
No matter what you’re interested in, you’re sure to find something fun and exciting on Sylvan Lake. It’s the perfect way to get away from it all during the summer months. So grab the family, grab the dog, and come on down. The water is just perfect.
