Beaches & Lakeside Parks

“Two weeks ago, we had widespread reports of overcrowding, inadequate physical distancing and general disregard for public health measures in place. Last weekend we saw clear improvements. Thanks to coordinated efforts by beach communities like Sylvan Lake, Chestermere and Alberta Beach, as well as health officials and law enforcement, but most of all thanks to the commitment of Albertans ,we had very few reports of issues at beaches across the province last weekend.”
- Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Chief Medical Officer of Health for Alberta (July 21, 2020)

Chestermere is home to three lakeside parks: Anniversary Park, Cove Park, and Sunset Park.
