Sylvan Lake Town Council passed amendments to the park's bylaw on June 24, introducing tent restrictions on the beachfront.  

Tents or sunshades larger than one square meter are not allowed in a new restricted zone along the beach, north of the asphalt walking trail along the beach from west of the Pier to the east area of Centennial Park.  

There are no tent restrictions south of the path. Anyone wishing to use a tent can do so there and into Centennial Park.  

“We take pride in being a community renowned for family gatherings or a place where you can enjoy quality time with friends, and that remains unchanged. Based on feedback from our residents, we're adjusting the locations for large tents to ensure everyone enjoys our lakefront to the fullest,” said Mayor Megan Hanson. “Centennial Park and the area south of the pathway offer spacious open areas perfect for gathering, while the sandy beach north of the pathway will now provide a tent-free view for everyone to enjoy.”
