McLaren Lake Regional Park has a natural beauty of its own with the spring water shed spilling into the lake from miles around. With a man made dam constructed in the 1960's the lake maintains a level that will not compromise any damage to the buildings and infrastructure as overflow water routes itself through drainage culverts. The lake can be described as the main venue with amenities such as swimming, boating, and fishing, as trout have been stocked into the lake. The park is a well treed area that has taken on a rejuvenation of new shelter belts along with a replacement program of new seedlings through the park.
Located in Richmound there is a confectionary/post office, credit union, Petro-Can cardlock. bar & cafe (no room rental at this time), Atm located at the bar, museum in Rm Office. There is a golf course in Burstall.
