Erosion of the Sylvan Lake Provincial Park Beach in 2012

Another June storm with strong northwest winds drove more waves into the southeast shore that is the main attraction for visitors. The following slide show records the state of the shore along the recreational waterfront. The sections that are still protected by engineered structures remain intact. Unprotected shoreline and the walking path are eroded and in many locations they are unsafe. Some trees and bushes along the lake edge are at risk from undercutting of the bank and they will eventually fall into the lake.
