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.

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.

Enjoy a Lakeside Picnic or BBQ 

There are several lakeside parks in Chestermere that are available to the public. Check out our Parks and Pathways page to find the parks that have a boardwalk, beach volleyball, picnic facilities, and BBQs.



Buoys are placed near the parks during the summer (Anniversary and John Peake Park) that mark shoreline areas that can be used for swimming. Please be advised that you swim at your own risk. There are no lifeguards on duty.
