VILLAGE OF BITTERN LAKE

Headshot

The Village of Bittern Lake is situated between Camrose and Wetaskiwin, along Highway 13. Originally named the Village of Rosenroll from 1904 to 1911, it acquired its present name from the Cree Indians. The first post office opened in the home of Ernest Roper in 1899.

Today, this charming and cozy village is renowned for its natural beauty. Each of its more than 210 residents takes pride in creating their own piece of paradise. The Westway Gardens are the village's sole business, drawing numerous visitors during May and June.

Access to the lake itself is not possible by road, and boating or fishing is discouraged due to the high alkali content and shallow waters. However, locals enjoy developing scenic walking trails leading to the lake and observing the native birds that nest in the area.
