Park / Area History

March 1961, the Kinsmen Club voted unanimously in favor of developing Silver Lake as a recreational facility. The Standard Hill Baseball club joined the endeavor by building a backstop that spring. Land was rented and swim area was started immediately. By October 1963, Silver Lake had a swimming area, picnic area, playground, sports ground and concession. The land was purchased and on May 1st, 1964, we became a Regional Park. The golf course, Kinsmen Ball Tournament and RCL swim program were launched that year. In 1966, living quarters, public washrooms and concession were built. In 1969, land was purchased to develop five serviced campsites. The Clubhouse and living quarters were built in 1971. In 1973, the dike was created forming a controlled swimming area; 1976, a fastball diamond was started. In 1977, the washroom, shower and laundry was built. In 1980, 80 more acres were purchased. During 1983, irrigation was added to the course, grass greens were opened 1986. The slow pitch league build another ball diamond. During 1990-91, the first family area was developed, with Standard Hill Baseball Club adding another in 1996. Also that year Ducks Unlimited raised a viewing tower in conjunction with the hiking trail. In 2008, 33 large seasonal sites were developed and improvements continue.

Golf

Our mature nine hole course crosses Big Gully Creek twice. The first crossing is between the men’s and ladies’ tee boxes on hole three. The second crossing is on the challenging par 3 hole four. On hole three you can take our trademark swinging bridge. The licensed clubhouse and deck offers a place to sit and visit with family and friends. Don’t forget to boast about that great shoot on hole three. Relax and quench your thirst indoors and enjoy the view of the 9th green from the sunny deck. The course has well maintained grass greens, practice green, fairway irrigation and a few bunkers. The clubhouse offers club and cart rentals food and refreshments. You should play the course to fully appreciate it!

Swimming

In 1973 a dike was constructed to create a controlled swimming area which contains a platform. There are change room and washrooms on the beach. Swimming lessons Red Cross/Royal Lifesaving Society are held the first two weeks in August.

Playground/Recreation Activities

There are two playgrounds and mini golf course for the little campers. We have two ball diamonds with dugouts: one baseball diamond and one slo-pitch/fastball diamonds. The Standard Hill Baseball Club hosts their annual tournament at the Park on Father’s Day weekend in June.

Boating and Fishing

There is a boat launch located at the southwest corner at the lake. We can’t confirm there are fish in the lake, but the pelicans and herons are here all year.

Hiking/Nature Trails

In 1996 Ducks Unlimited raised a viewing tower which ties into the hiking trail. From there you can over look the wetlands to see many species of birds and wildlife. So bring your binoculars. Access has been limited the last few years due to high water levels.

Mini Golf

In 2008, we replaced the 9 hole mini golf. With its difficult layout, it’s not only for the children. A good place to practice your putting skills.

Additional Features

The seasonal campers host a couple of functions each year. Admission is by donation and valid park pass. In August we have a “drive in movie” which is held on the baseball diamond. A golf car or lawn chair are all you need to watch a family orientated movie. In September the seasonal campers hold a fun/night golf, with a barbecued steak supper in between golfing. The long weekend in September is finished off by a fantastic display of fireworks, sponsored by a collection of donations from the seasonal campers.
