Sylvan Lake is also the only beach from Alberta to make the list.

According to the AMA article, Sylvan Lake is a “fantastic option for boating and fishing” and is also “known for being very clean.”

Sylvan Lake residents have taken to social media to show their excitement at being recognized, saying the recognition is “so cool” and shows the work put into the are is paying off.

The Town of Sylvan Lake is currently working on a revitalization plan for the lakefront area in the form of ReIMAGINE Sylvan.

The plan is to make the lakefront area the “vibrant heart” of town by 2038.

Barrier-free public access to the waterfront area, is one important factor the plan hopes to implant in regards to parks and open spaces.
