Playground/Recreation Activities

The playground area is adjacent to the swimming and beach area and has good visibility to both places. The playground was upgraded with a new play center.  The play area is a sand base ground and is very safe for the young children. There are six ball diamonds with shale infields in the park that host minor ball, adult baseball, fastball and slo-pitch teams in the area.

Boating and Fishing

A trout pond is located in the south east corner of Macklin Lake Regional Park. This trout pond is maintained by the Macklin Wildlife Federation. Macklin Lake Regional Park has also installed an aeration system to rehabilitate the lake. Macklin Lake is also used for recreational activities such as water skiing. All personal watercraft is permitted through the park gates. There is a concrete boat launch with a fixed aluminum dock.

Hiking/Nature Trails

The historical walking trail begins in the town of Macklin and runs through Macklin Lake Regional Park.  There are cross country ski trails in winter that are regularly groomed throughout the park with skis available for rent.

Additional Features

The park hosts the World Bunnock Championship every August long weekend. This is a co-ed family-oriented game played with actual horse ankle bones. The object of the game is for teams of four to knock down a row of bones with a shooter bone.
