Established June 19, 1918, Swan Lake is BC’s third oldest park and is a small picturesque lakeshore park that attracts hundreds of people for family-fun adventures. From boating and swimming to playgrounds and campsites, Swan Lake has become a hotspot for spring and summer nature excursions. Home to a myriad of animals, such as moose, beaver, and deer, Swan Lake also has an abundance of waterfowl and migratory birds and is a popular spot for recreational anglers.
