Today I visited sylvan lake hoping for a fun day with family and my little dog. However I was disappointed shortly after arriving by two officers that dogs are not allowed on the grass. Since I... more »

Sylvan lake is nice and shallow for quite a ways out. Good for little kids that way! We did find it very busy and parking cost can add up when your travelling with family. But there's other options... more »
This is a beautiful fresh water lake in central Alberta very close to Red Deer. During summer there is an influx of tourists here. There are shops,restaurants and a few hotels. It looks very lively and festive. There are seats placed at intervals on the road facing the lake with lovely flower pots encouraging tourists to take in the quiet beauty of this huge Lake. In summer people like to swim, use their yacht or boats, camp nearby etc. There are some impressive lake front houses . It's a great place to visit as a day trip or even stay at the Hotels in SylvanLake. As it's only 22 minutes from Red deer you could stay there too. It takes an hour and half to travel from Edmonton to Sylvan Lake. It's a wonderful place to visit with family and friends.
Amazing trails, lots of space and beautiful women! Stores and restaurants near as well as the beach. Stretches along to Rotary Park with a massive light house... So much character in this space. There is a historical tale told by placards placed along the trail, which I have captured for your viewing pleasure!
Very crowded during long weekends but nice lake. Water is excellent and there's shady and sunny places. It's nice they have bylaw officers out and about to keep people in line. People need to pick up after themselves but it's nice to see lots of families having cookouts and a good time.
Good for two boys playing on the beach. But too crowed for family. Of course there are many stores around beach. Parking is convenience. You can park at private place and $10 per day in 2019. You should come early to find a good place. There is no fire pits around beach. Also it has very short sand beach.
Staff are friendly and helpful. The seating area is spacious and you can take a large group with little to no notice. The food is good so is the atmosphere. We have gone on a number of occasions, my spouse is not too fond of Chinese food, but really enjoys the western food so both of us can enjoy a night out. Leaving feeling like we definitely are too much. I would recommend you giving this place a try.
