August’s Cultus Lake Park ROCKS Grand Prize

We’re thrilled to announce that our August Grand Prize for the Cultus Lake Park ROCKS contest is our LARGEST yet! Below is a list of the prizes – valued at more than $800*:

  • A two-night stay for up to four people at the Cultus Lake Park Cabins* ($344 value)
  • Gift certificate from Inkboy Tattoo ($180 value)
  • Cultus Lake Golf Club Package, including two 18-hole green fees, one hour on the Toptracer Range, two small buckets of balls for the driving range ($107 value)
  • One-hour stand up paddle board rental from Main Beach Boat Rental and Concession ($90 value)
  • Gift certificate for Sleepy Hollow Gems ($50 value)
  • Gift certificate for Beethoven’s Pizza ($25 value)
  • Gift certificate for ice cream at Frosty’s ($5 value)

(*All prizes are based on availability. The Cabins certificate is valid until November 30, 2019 and is not valid for long weekend stays.)

Each week – from Monday to Thursday – 10 GREEN rocks marked with “www.cultuslake.bc.ca” are hidden around Cultus Lake Park. Find one of the rocks, take it to the Park Office during office hours Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., and you will get a small prize (that will make a young child very happy). You will also be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE for that month.

The GREEN rocks are hidden in the Cultus Lake Park Main Beach area on Monday mornings and they are picked up on Thursday evenings. This is a WEEKDAY-ONLY contest. You won’t be able to find a green rock on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays – you have to come out during the week.

It’s only one entry per week per family – so if you find more than one GREEN rock, please leave it in place for someone else to find!

We will draw the grand prize for this month on August 27, 2019 – just prior to the Labour Day long weekend.

Good luck to everyone this month!

Bylaw Fines Have Increased

We know that many people may find bylaws (and more specifically, bylaw enforcement) frustrating. No one wants to receive a fine, but sometimes they are a necessity.

Cultus Lake Park fines for bylaw infractions have increased. They are now up to $2,000 per infraction.

Bylaws are in place for the control, management, maintenance, use and enjoyment of Cultus Lake Park by all. They support the safety and security of residents and visitors.

It may come as a surprise, but the Bylaw Compliance and Enforcement Officers don’t want to fine you. In fact, they want you to comply with the bylaws. It’s even in their title. They are trained to help educate the community about the bylaws.

Whether it is keeping your dog on a leash, not smoking, refraining from consuming alcohol in public areas, or keeping laneways adjacent to residential or business lots clear and maintained – bylaws are in place for the good of the community.

If you have questions about bylaws or would just like to come by for a cup of coffee and a chat, Cultus Lake Park has an open door policy. We would love to see you. If you would prefer to email us, that works too. Our email is: info@cultuslake.bc.ca.  

Please adhere to the bylaws – you can find them here. We will also be putting up a series of posters that highlight bylaws that are broken more often than others – and we’ll be sharing a few blog posts on them here.

Adhering to bylaws is the responsibility of everyone in the community.

Elvis Is Back in Cultus Lake Park

The Cultus Lake Park Community Events and Engagement Committee (CEEC) is thrilled to present Elvis Tribute Artist, Elvis Elite (Steve Elliott) for a FREE concert on Friday, August 9 at the Plaza, beginning at 7 p.m.

Elliott is a world-class Elvis tribute singer and entertainer. Born in Nanaimo, he started his career in 2004, after winning the Top Canadian Tribute Title at Penticton’s Annual Elvis Festival. He also won the Elvis Mania Festival in Cloverdale. Elliott has performed at the Vancouver PNE in 2007 and in 2010, he sang in front of 25,000 people at Empire Stadium for a BC Lions halftime show. This dynamic performer brings “young Elvis” to the stage (you will think that Elvis has been alive and well and living in the Fraser Valley all these years!). Watch for some classic Elvis moves such as hip swivels and the duck walk – seriously, it’s like young Elvis is right there on the stage!

Complete with his 1966 Pink Cadillac and multiple outfit changes, Elliott puts on a great show whenever he performs. Get ready to sing, dance and party like young Elvis at this year’s Party in the Plaza!

Lakeside Beach Club will have a grill outside for concertgoers. Grab something to eat, enjoy the summer weather, and rock along with the sounds of classic 50s and 60s Elvis.

This is another Cultus Lake Park Community Events and Engagement Committee event that you don’t want to miss!

Cultus Lake Golf Club Offers Toptracer Range

This blog post was developed for a Cultus Lake Day sponsor and is part of their sponsorship package.

Located in Cultus Lake Park, Cultus Lake Golf Club is a beautiful place to play, whether you have time to play 9 or 18 holes, or just practice your game on the range. If you just want to unwind and enjoy a meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) and cocktails on the deck overlooking the course, be sure to visit Legends Bistro.

Improve your swing at Cultus Lake Golf Club and try something that no one else has to offer. Look and feel like a pro – even if you are just a beginner – with Toptracer Range technology at your fingertips. Cultus Lake Golf Club is the first facility offering this ultra-modern technology in the Lower Mainland, and third in the entire country. That’s all of Canada – and we’re a pretty big place!

Toptracer Range offers the latest in golf technology – that same technology that is utilized on the PGA tour during their live broadcasting. Toptracer uses cameras and monitors to track your shots, while offering fun, engaging games that are great for any skill level. The shot history data and specific club performance details will appeal to the experienced golfers, while the interactive games and competitions will be of interest to beginners – or anyone just looking for something new to do in the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland.

Toptracer is changing the face of golf by making it exciting and fun for everyone, whether you’re a scratch golfer or a beginner.

Polish up those clubs and head on out to the course with friends and family. (Rentals are available.) Don’t forget to book your very own Toptracer Lounge Bay, where you can sit back and enjoy food and drinks in your own private, comfortable outdoor lounge while everyone in your group works on their game.

At Cultus Lake Golf Club, the staff are helpful and welcoming, there is plenty to do, and the food is great.

Get away from it all, in the middle of everything. It’s worth a visit!

Summer Farmers’ Market at the Plaza

Did you know that the Summer Farmers’ Market at Cultus Lake Park has a new location – the Community Barn in the Cultus Lake Park Plaza (next to Frosty’s)? This popular weekly event runs every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. until August 31.

For Sunnyside Campground guests and visitors from Chilliwack, Fraser Valley and the Lower Mainland, there is free parking available for two hours at the Plaza. Just put your licence plate number into a meter and you’re all set to check out the great vendors at the Summer Farmers’ Market and all that there is to choose from in the shops at the Cultus Lake Park Business Plaza.

Each week, the Summer Farmers’ Market brings some regular (and favourite) vendors, along with a few new ones to check out. There is live music – and some little children have gotten in on the fun – dancing their way into our hearts!

The Summer Farmers’ Market offers visitors a range of locally sourced items to choose from – including fresh produce, baked goods, craft beer, small batch whiskey and vodka, herbs, flowers, handmade soaps, essential oils, jewellery and more.

Come and see what’s there, get something delicious to eat, or find a gift for someone special (like yourself!). The new location gives you lots of space to park and wander around, checking out what the market has to offer each week.
