Park Description

Leslie Beach Regional Park is one of Saskatchewan best kept secrets! At the entrance to Leslie Beach Regional Park is a replica of a large Northern Pike, PIKEZELLA. The fish was caught in February 2009 weighing in at 39.9 pounds, a record weight for a southern Saskatchewan lake.

The park welcomes families and friends to enjoy our great sand beaches and our clear clean lake. Swimming, boating, fishing or just relaxing in the summer sun creates the perfect recipe for making holiday memories. Other activities we offer at the park include a maintained Boat Launch, a Fish Filleting Station, a Mini Golf Course, a 1-on-1 Basketball Court, a 3-hole Chip n Putt Golf Course, Beach Volleyball Courts, a Soccer Field, an upgraded Horseshoe Pit and Ball Diamond. The park office has sport equipment on loan for all these activities. During the summer months additional recreational programs and special events are organized for all ages, young and old.

The park also boasts a wonderful play structure. Right next to the playground is the gazebo and community hall. The gazebo and fully furnished hall host many functions such as weddings, reunions, birthdays, barbecues, anniversaries, movie nights and more.

To date, Leslie Beach Regional Park has 116 Seasonal Campsites, 51 Daily Sites, and a number of Picnic Sites. The Resort Village of Leslie Beach is adjacent to the park and it has 165 cottage homes.

Park / Area History

Fishing Lake was a popular destination since the 1930's, drawing visitors primarily from the surrounding rural areas. In the mid 1940's early 1950's interest in developing the lake grew.
In 1952 the rural co-operative associations of the surrounding area established the Leslie Beach Recreational Co-operative Board. Many local volunteers worked hard in the development of Leslie Beach. In 1967 Fishing Lake Regional Park including Leslie Beach Regional Park was established. Since then the park has become a very popular summer and winter recreational destination for many families near and far. In 1997 and 2007 Leslie Beach experienced devastation with the major flooding of Fishing Lake. As was in the past, a new generation of dedicated hard working volunteers and staff worked hard to restore Leslie Beach to its present state of, 165 cottage homes, 167 campsites and a wide range of recreational amenities.

Camping

Leslie Beach has a total 167 campsites, all with power and non-potable water. There are 116 seasonal sites that have either 30 amp or 50 amp power and sewer. For the daily camper, Campers Haven (Timoschuk West) has 25 well-shaded daily sites. Across the way, the sunrises on 21 other sites located on Main Beach. These sites are designed for the camper who wants to be right at the water’s edge. In the last few years 5 additional pull through sites have been built next to the playground/gazebo/hall and near the beach. These drive-thru campsites have 50 amp power, non-potable water and are ideal for a group attending a family reunion, wedding or other special events in the park.

So, no matter which campsite suits you best, sun or shade, we feel we can easily accommodate the seasonal and daily campers at our park and with the majority of our sites being larger we are confident that we can also accommodate the recreational vehicles of today. All areas have picnic tables and fire pits with grills. Potable water, ice, minnows and bundles of wood are available for sale at the Park Office. Recyclable bins are located north of the hall and trash cans are placed throughout the campsites and park areas. Modern toilet facilities are on site with coin operated showers, flush toilets and sinks. Located behind the hall and near the playground is a wheelchair accessible washroom.  A sewage dump station is located in the park.


Group Camping

Leslie Beach does not have a designated Group camping area.  Family and friends do book adjoining sites but this is only available through online reservations on a first call first serve basis. Each site has either 30 amp or 50 amp electrical service and non potable water.

Swimming

Leslie Beach Regional Park is truly one of the Saskatchewan hidden jewels and offers one of the best sand beaches in the province! Filled with wonderfully even sand, the lake’s waters are clear and clean! It’s become a very popular place to relax in the summer. A large buoyed swimming area demarcates the safe zone from water crafts and skiers. Washrooms and showers are located on main beach. The park offers Red Cross swimming lessons yearly, with the 2017 session being held August 7th to the 11th inclusive. For more information or to register call the park office at 1-306-272-3968.

Playground/Recreation Activities

The Violet Park Playground is centrally located between the hall, gazebo and Main Beach. Through the generous donation from the Markusson family, in memory or their mother, and with the financial partnering of the village and park the new play center was constructed. Violet Park provides hours of fun for hundreds of children year round.

Boating and Fishing

Leslie Beach Regional Park has two cement boat launch pads separated by a dock. A first class fish filleting facility is located near the boat launch. Many refer to it as one of the best in the province. In this area we also offer designated areas for parking vehicles, trailers and boats. Since the floods at Fishing Lake, record size Northern Pike have been caught in the summer and winter. Most catch their daily limits of Walleye and Jack fish and an occasional Perch on the lake, thus giving us the reputation of a fisherman’s paradise. Our large lake also offers an endless amount of space for water sports and pleasure boating enthusiasts. All water crafts and boats are permitted at Leslie Beach.

Hiking/Nature Trails

Whether you are walking or jogging down Leslie Beach Road or on the berm waterfowl and a variety of shorebirds abound. The park has many trails individuals have developed either for bird watching, physical activity or just to enjoy nature at its finest.

Mini Golf

Leslie Beach is in the process of upgrading the 18 hole mini golf course located north of the park entrance.  This busy course provides enjoyment for young and old.  Next to it is our upgraded Horseshoe Pit, 1-on-1 Basketball Court and Soccer Field.  Across the road is a 3 Hole Chip and Putt and newly upgraded Ball Diamond.  The Beach Volleyball Courts are located just east of the playground.  Putters, scorecards and all other sports equipment are available at the Park Office.

Additional Features

The Leslie Beach Market Gardens continue to be very popular, drawing a crowd from all the beaches at Fishing Lake. Many local vendors bring a wide variety of items for sale. The Market Gardens starts the last week of June and last until the long weekend in September on Saturday mornings from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

Since the origin of Leslie Beach, ball diamonds were part of the park.  In 2016 the board responded to requests to upgrade the diamonds.  Black dirt fill and shale were brought in and grass was planted.  In 2017 one diamond will be ready for the public.

New this year to the Community Hall and Gazebo – a natural gas BBQ and a new projector and screen to accommodate the “Movie Nights” and power point presentations if required when functions at the hall are being held.

Leslie Beach Regional Park has tons of green space for throwing the football around, flying kites and toy airplanes safely. This open area is also where we have our Fireworks Display on July 1st.
