Burns Lake has an undeniably rich recreation culture. From the variety of programming at the Lakeside Multiplex, Tom Forsyth Memorial Arena, Curling Rink, and Spirit Square, to the limitless number of dedicated local groups who provide incredible activities for all ages, there are few excuses left not to be active in the Lakes District!

Our residents have a passion for play. We want to encourage everyone to find an activity they love, and get involved, and if you don’t see it here, then start a club!
Our new Lakeside Multiplex Facility has programming all day long for every fitness level and activity type. We also have a climbing wall with dozens of challenging routes, a combination squash and racquetball court, a fitness facility, a multi-use room for activities and meetings, and a full time concession. All this is on top of our other facilities like the arena, curling rink, and spirit square park. Finally, the surrounding area is perfect for the outdoor enthusiast, with a world class mountain biking center, a phenomenal cross country ski course, endless fishing and hunting opportunities, and some of the most beautiful and untouched nature you will ever see. Here, you can utilize all four seasons to their fullest, and there is space enough for everyone to play. This is why we make our lives here, welcome to your recreation paradise!
