Neighborhood: Whistler Creek
Overview

No tides, no currents, or sharp rocks here, just crystal clean mountain fresh water. Believe it or not, Whistler has several places to swim. Lakeside Park is located on Lakeside Road, where you'll find a small beach, kids play area, picnic tables, barbecues, and a concession renting canoes during the summer. Rainbow Park is located on the west side of Whistler Valley and is a pleasant 20-minute bike ride along the Valley Trail from the Village. It is well worth the time to get there! Just off Alta Lake Road, Rainbow Park has lots of space and was originally the site of the historical Rainbow Lodge built by Whistler pioneer lady Myrtle Philip. If you decide to drive to Rainbow Park, there is ample parking but it may take you the same amount of time to drive as it will to bike! Lastly, Wayside Park has a small beach with kayak rentals, barbecues, and picnic tables and is also located on the shores of Alta Lake. It is close to the Creekside neighborhood of Whistler, has parking and is also accessible by the Valley Trail.
