Boat Launch

  1. Fees 
  2. Protecting Chestermere Lake 
  3. Regulations

In order to accommodate the public, and as a temporary measure for the remainder of the 2018 season, we will be leaving the exit arm up at the boat launch until Oct. 8th.
The City is deeply concerned about the possibility of contamination of invasive species and is implementing measures now, and others in the future, in order to ensure that we are doing our best to protect the lake. We are looking at options such as a swipe card or ticket system at the launch in 2019, which will provide more control over the use of the launch but will also allow more ease of use for Chestermere residents. Once the City has finalized plans in 2019, changes to the Boat Launch procedures will be communicated to all users.

If you have any questions, please call (403) 207-7096
