Local Attractions

There are many beautiful sights to see and places to visit while in Fairview.

Fairview Regional Aquatic Centre

Hotel guests can dive right in to enjoy their stay with complimentary passes to the Fairview Regional Aquatic Centre and fitness areas! It is an awesome facility offering a five-lane, 25-metre lap pool and a zero-depth wading pool. The pools have multiple water features, including river jets and fountain canes. People of all ages will enjoy the 150-foot water slide– the biggest in the Peace Country, the tarzan rope, the skywalker hanging monkey bar climber and the rock-climbing wall. Warm up and relax in the 20-person hot tub with a wheelchair access ramp.

Cummings Lake and Recreation Area

Fairview’s family resort! Complete with boat launch, fish cleaning facility, ball diamonds, paved walking trails, cross-country ski trails, picnic area, and the Pioneer Museum. Cummings Lake has a little something for everyone to enjoy.

Dunvegan Historic Site

One of Alberta’s best known historical sites, only 15 minutes south of Fairview. You can stroll the banks of the mighty Peace River and journey to the time of wild-west fur traders, enjoy the day-use BBQ and picnic areas, and visit the information centre for a glimpse at the rich history of the region. Don’t miss the Maples picnic area and playground, just a short walk to the west.

Sand Lake Natural and Cross Country Ski Area

Also, just minutes from Fairview, the beauty of this recreation area stands out every day of the year. Sand Lake is a winter haven groomed for cross-country skiers and snowmobiler enthusiasts alike. Summertime attractions include berry picking, hiking and ATV trail riding.

Fairview Golf Club

A scenic and challenging nine-hole course of water and bush, this is one of the more popular grass greens courses in the Peace River Country. The club offers all the services you expect, including full rentals, pro-shop, lessons, and a great after-game lounge. Reservations are required on weekends.
