Sylvan Lake leasing space at new park

Former waterslide site will be a temporary park with washrooms, changerooms and concessions

Sylvan Lake has some lease opportunities at its newest park.

The site of the former Wild Rapids Waterslides has been renamed Lakefront Park and will be spruced up this spring. Some grass will be laid and the parking lot turned into a visitor pay parking to create a temporary park until a grander waterfront scheme is developed.

While the waterslide structures were torn down last fall, changerooms, a ticket office, roof-top patio and four leasable spaces remain.

Council voted on Monday to direct administration to issue tenders for two non-water-based vendors and a concession service. The washrooms and changerooms will be open for public use and are expected to be a popular addition to the lakeshore area.

The roof-top patio will be available for short-term public rentals.

The town intends to use the money raised from leasing out space to offset the cost of maintaining the park.
