Summer Activities



Boaters are welcome on Chestermere Lake. Check out the Boat Launch page for information on how to get on the water and then feel free to enjoy the wind in your hair, get out on a wakeboard, waterskiis, or tubes. 

While we invite you to enjoy all of these activities on the south end of the lake, the speed limit north of the bridge is 12 km / h. Please abide by all boating rules and regulations.

Temporary Boat Launch Closure - August 14, 2021

With John Peake Park filled with Music Fest activities on August 14th, the Chestermere Boat Launch will be closed to residents and visitors due to space restrictions. 

This means boats cannot be launched or retrieved for the day, and Chestermere residents will not be able to use their automated registration tags to gain entry.

Please note: due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are new operating requirements at the City Boat Launch, visit the Boat Launch page for further details or Read more in the Lake & Beaches FAQ.

Non-motorized Boating:

While motor boats are popular on the lake, you are also welcome to use non motorized boats such as canoes, kayaks, sailboats, paddleboats, and many more. 


Fishing is welcome on Chestermere Lake. There have been several very large fish that have been caught in the lake and the next one could be yours. Be sure to get your fishing licence before you cast your line.
