Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Sibbald Point Provincial Park (Sutton)

Family Tested
High energy

A good swim

Sibbald Point Provincial Park is quite busy. One goes there to mingle with the crowd rather than to return to nature. The decibel level in the park doesn't exactly make it relaxing, as motor boats are allowed on the lake. On the other hand, serious swimmers can enjoy the great waves generated by the boats, challenging for those swimming beyond the buoys. The beach is long and there's a nice playground facing it. The children in our group spent their time visiting it between a swim and an ice cream cone. I checked the beach on the west side of the park, across the farthest parking lot and found a tall pine and cedar forest with picnic tables. Various natural clearings revealed a narrow pebble beach, much more isolated and not marked by buoys. The waves were stronger and more fun for big kids who can swim well.
