Cascade Ponds Beach in Banff, AB
Cascade Ponds Beach in Banff Short Term Forecast
Cascade Ponds Beach and Swimming Area is like jumping into a painting. The scenery and setting is mountain meadow at it's best and is easy to access from the Banff townsite on the way to Lake Minnewanka. Like any mountain pond and lake choose a hot day for swimming in the crystal clear waters because it can be chilly. The pond has a small beach area picnic area public washrooms and easy access from the parking lot. You can see braver souls jumping from one of the bridges on the pond. There is no marked swimming area or supervision but the waters have a more gradual slope in the beach area. Photo credit to Pam Loewen from Flickr. The beach and lake were open all of the 2011 2012 and 2013 bathing seasons and this pristine lake has no history of health advisories in recent years.
