You can walk for miles on this clean, sandy beach. It is a wild beach as in it does not have any amenities like restaurants or water slides or boat launches. It's just you and the birds and the driftwood and the ladybugs and the ants and maybe a deer or a bear. And just a handful of people. Great... More

Miles of natural sand. You don't even have to wash your feet when you leave, the sand is so fine. Lots of birds, and lots of ants though.

Devonshire Beach is a very nice, sandy beach with very shallow water. There are also lots of birds here. Great beach for families. Really no services - there is a pit toilet up at one of the parking places. There is an observation area that has a picnic table. We were traveling with children and just enjoyed the sand and...

I am so impressed with this lovely lakeside area in Sylvan Lake! This project is commendable! Everyone can enjoy the lake with it's accessible boardwalk, benches, Adirondack chairs, playgrounds, green spaces and abundant comfort amenities (washrooms, change rooms and trash cans) Although the sandy beach area is narrow there is plenty of grassy beachfront with access to the lake for...

This lake makes missing the ocean less. The splashing and rolling fills you with energy and peace at the same time.

Filthy beach. Trash everywhere! Don't know if residents or visitors are pigs. Have some respect people! Definitely poor first impression

I kid you not lake is loaded with fish. You only need a hook and a line to get one. Lake looks calm, only 34 feet at deepest but can get white caps and pretty rough. WOnderful adventure for fishing, boating, SUP etc.

I went there with family for an evening out of light picnic & snacks. I promised my grand daughter she can play in the sand. Well.. there are lots of parking & picnic tables. the beach area NEEDS to be cleaned up either by the Town or the community. Hold a community clean up !!

This is one of the nicest lakes in Alberta and yet the lake isn't over crowded like most of the other lakes in central Alberta. You can walk out forever, and the sandbars are amazing as you can find yourself up to you shoulders one minute and the next even farther out you have water by your knee's Love this... More
