From our boat, we can access pristine secluded beaches. When our family was young, we enjoyed water skiing the lake, now my husband enjoys taking our boat out to fish, and I like to use it as my swim pad.
Wynndel also has Duck Lake for recreation. The swans return in the spring and fall, and there is an excellent variety of other waterfowl that inhabit these waters to enjoy watching. Fishing magazines have reported Duck Lake has some of Western Canada's best Bass fishing. Take a drive out during the spring, and you will find turtles crossing the road to lay their eggs. Just be careful not to run them over.
When our kids were little, we would take them out fishing after work in early spring with a picnic supper. We would fish off the rocks across from Sirdar. It was great fun reeling in a fighting fish to release after or to take home for cooking up. I particularly enjoy the scenic view along the shore during the golden hour just before the bats would come out to swoop up any insects that had hatched early.
I enjoy going out skating on Duck Lake in the winter. It is also fun to watch people Ice Fishing and see what they pull out for the ice holes. Every fall and spring, the Tundra Swans make a stopover, and some stay longer. It is magical to be there. Be sure and notice the 1900 historical buildings in the Sirdar community. These buildings tell of a time when this area was a going concern as a multi-track CPR train yard.
Wynndel is known for its farm and garden gate produce sales that stem from a rich history as major strawberry producers and flower growers. Now there is also the vineyards, of Wynnwood Cellars winery to add to the flavour of the area.
