The Sikome Aquatic Facility can be accessed by Bow Bottom Trail S.E. or Sun Valley Boulevard S.E. off Highway 22x. Parking is available on site. Access to parking lots is controlled by signage to lessen congestion. Please follow directions on signs or from staff on-site.
There are 3 parking lots available on-site. The NW lot is accessible from Sun Valley Boulevard. The NE lot is accessible from Bow Bottom Trail. A large south lot is accessible from both Sun Valley Boulevard and Bow Bottom Trail. Vehicles blocking emergency vehicle access, parked along roadways or in areas designated as no parking will be ticketed. If your preferred lot is full, proceed to the South parking lot. Please follow parking directions on signs or from staff on-site as required.
Sikome is classified as a “man-made beach”. Three fresh water wells supply the water for Sikome; no water is taken from the Bow River. A water treatment plant on-site ensures water quality. Every week, staff take water samples from different areas of the lake. The samples are analyzed at the Foothills Hospital and results are forwarded to Alberta Health Services and the Park. Water quality criteria for man-made beaches and public swimming pools are not the same.
