and an abundance of natural beauty. It's a place where people come for a visit and never want to leave. Surrounded by

Provincial parks and beautiful Alberta landscape Cold Lake is a haven for outdoor recreation enthusiasts. With a population

including catchment of 18,577, Cold Lake has three main economic industries - the Canadian Forces Base - 4Wing, several

thriving oil and gas developments as well as a busy tourism sector. Construction on the Base began in 1952 and it is now the

largest air force base in Canada. Cold Lake is located 287 km northeast of Edmonton and 107 kms north of Lloydminster.Take

a trip down the Iron Horse Trail on your ATV or snowmobile, rip up the dirt on our newly commissioned motocross track or

head out on the lake for a day of fishing. Enjoy the Millennium trail which runs from the Canadian Air Force Base 4Wing to the

Marina. When you're ready to relax, head to Kinosoo Beach, recently voted one of Canada's top 25 beaches or out on the

green at one of three local golf courses. Aside from our ice arenas, baseball fields, soccer pitches, and local ski hill, the new

Energy Centre offers a host of things to see and do including a world-class fitness centre. Cold Lake really is a four season

playground!Our 250 berth marina, the largest inland marina in western Canada, provides access to almost 400 square

kilometers of open water with lots of sandy beaches. Fishing is a favorite pastime here, which is not surprising since the lake

Alberta for Lake Trout. A whopping 52 ½ pound was caught in 1929 with a line and hook.Community Organizations are
