Nicholas Sheran Park is the premier west side park featuring a man made lake, a great trail system around the lake, large open spaces, disk golf, a large playground, fitness equipment, a small picnic shelter and an edible orchard.
The lake has fishing for everything from Trout to Pike and White Fish. There is even Grass Carp (for controlling the weeds). During the summer you will often see kayakers and boaters enjoying the lake. It is not uncommon to see ducks and other waterfowl while out enjoying this park. If you look closely you will also see other birds and mammals along the lake and hiding in the riprap along the shoreline.
There is approximately 7 km of paved and shale trails throughout the park. The trails see heavy traffic including families with strollers, joggers, walkers, and cyclists. There is now fitness equipment installed in Nicholas Sheran, so you can get your exercise in and enjoy the great outdoors at the same time. Look for free fitness classes happening through the summer.
Nicholas Sheran Park is home to Lethbridge’s only Disc Golf Course. It is a full 18 hole course built on over 100 acres of the park. Alberta Disc Golf says “its an awesome course with some monster holes with a total length of 2693 meters from the blue tees, making this the longest Disc Golf course in Canada.”
The train and coal mining themed playground features swings, slides and a large climbing apparatus.
