Things To Do
The Battlefords Park hugs the shores of Jackfish Lake, a shallow wfater body that sits amid gently rolling plains created 10,000 years ago by retreating glaciers. You can enjoy a little sun-and-splash on the beach or assemble the gang for some fun at the horseshoe pitch, beach volleyball courts or the miniature golf facility.
Jackfish Lake offers a wide range of water activities.
The park offers a large beach area for swimming. The main beach area also offers a large cultured grass area for recreational activities.
Jackfish Lake contains pike, walleye, perch and whitefish. A commercial net fishery for whitefish takes place each winter. Boat rentals and fishing equipment are all available from Beachside Boat Rentals located on the main beach.
