There are so many fantastic summer experiences in and around The Estates at Waters Edge. Add more fun to your summer and check out our top 8 activities at Alberta Beach and the local area:

1. Visiting our Favourite Secret Spot on the Lake

Picturesque Lac Ste. Anne is full of hidden gems and we’re going to let you in on our favourite secret spot! You’ll find us relaxing island style in Westcove.

This lake spot is tucked away on the eastern part of the lake at the north side of the island near Westcove. Lac Ste. Anne is quite a large lake, yet this quaint enclave is nice and protected from any wind or weather that can blow in on a summer day!

2. Spending a Sunday Afternoon at Alberta Beach Farmers Market

Support your community by shopping from a variety of local vendors, and bring the whole family- there’s something for everyone! 

Runs May to October annually.

3. Grabbing a Meal at One of Our Favourite Local Eateries

When looking for comfort food you can catch us at Mama’s Kitchen in Alberta Beach. The décor is nothing fancy, but this little gem oozes cozy charm. Generous portions and great service—a menu favourite is the fish and chips!

Another must-try? Tri-Village Pizza –grab a slice and check out the beach. During peak season it can get pretty busy, but trust us, it’s worth the wait!

Although closed at the moment due to high river levels, this is one of the best activities in the area! 

The best way to see the Pembina River is to float down the gentle current. Expect to see the 62-meter gorge created from the Ice Age, various wildlife, and the joy of relaxing while the current drifts along this amazing and winding river!
