Mushamush Beach Park

Mushamush Beach Park

Region: Lunenburg Region

Mushamush Beach Park is a municipal treasure! Located on Mushamush Lake in Sweetland, it is a pleasant drive from anywhere in our District.

The park is open May through to October from 9am until dusk for swimming, picnicing, paddling or a leisurely walk. The lake is shallow with a very low grade making it an excellent swimming area for little ones and those not comfortable in deep water. The Municipality offers swimming lessons at this location.

The beach is equipped with accessible picnic tables and on-site privies. There is also a small play area on-site for children. Come prepared to spend the day! Pack up your swimsuit, beach blanket, shovel and bucket, and maybe a good book.

Unfortunately, you will need to leave your pet at home as pets are prohibited. If you are looking for a location that allows pets, all of the other Municipal parks are pet on leash parks.
