It's not summer without a trip to Sylvan Lake's legendary beach! Soak up the rays lakeside in shallow water, perfect for kids and families to play.

Sylvan Lake's Beachfront

ALONG THE BEACH

Sylvan Lake’s beachfront stretches west from the lighthouse east to 34 Street, a collection of grass park, walking trails, beach boardwalk, beachside shops, marina, boat launch, groomed picnic areas, and wilder natural areas. The diversity of spaces and ease of walking around the beachfront make it the perfect place to spend the day exploring.

WALK THE DISTANCE

From one end to the other, the beach takes about an hour to walk. Paved trails, sidewalks, and the boardwalk can be found on most of the west half of the beach. Dirt and gravel trails through the trees are available on the east side of the beach.

BEACH AMENITIES

There are two big groomed grass parks, Centennial Park and Lakefront Park, ideal for playing a game of catch, soccer, and picnicking. Families can find two large public washrooms facilities along the beach as well as picnic tables and picnic shelters in Centennial Park. Along the sidewalk and in public parks, many Adirondack chairs and benches lend places to stop for a rest.

PARKING & DOGS

Lakeshore Drive runs along the beach and has many drop-off zones to unload beach gear and family members before finding a parking spot. Dogs are permitted to walk on the sidewalk along the beach but are not permitted on grass areas. Lakeshore Drive has three large parking lots for visitor day parking.
