A) The Seba Beach Public Washrooms are open from 8 am - dusk and cleaned during the week. We welcome you to use these facilities respectfully while enjoying the lake during the summer months.
B) Seba Beach is participating in the AHS water monitoring program. This is to ensure we can address issues leading towards environmental degradation and prevent or mitigate the potential for further Blue-Green Algae blooms and other impacts on our enjoyment of the lake. We encourage residents to remind each other that we are a Fertilizer and Herbicide free community and that the future of our lake (and this community) is dependant on everyone.
C) Reminder: Fireworks are prohibited except with a permit which will only be issued for 3 days of the year in both Parkland County and Seba Beach. Fines range between $500 to $5,000 and additional RCMP policing has been contracted with instruction to enforce and fine offenders. Residents disturbed by fireworks should document and report observed offenses and friendly neighbors may want to remind each other of this restriction.

The Seba Beach Regatta Committee met on Sunday July 4th, a group of twenty one individuals, to determine whether Regatta 2021 should take place and if so in what form.
There was considerable discussion and debate with the consensus that only certain water events can be held at a safe distance and will not create large crowds that form together.
For this reason, the Regatta Committee decided to limit this years Regatta to
- The Fleet Sail By
- The Dingy Race and
- The Water Skiing
All of these events can be completed while maintaining a safe distance from others. These will all take place on Sunday August 1st and Posters will be prepared to advertise these events.
The Summer Village of Seba Beach
The Summer Village of Seba Beach was incorporated August 2, 1920. The incorporation was published in the Alberta Gazette August 14th, 1920. The name Seba was chosen by the postal authorities when the post office was opened in July 1915. It is believed that the name was taken after Seba, one of the sons of Cush from Genesis 10:7 in the Bible. The name also appears in Psalm 72. The Village is located on the western end of Lake Wabamun (Cree word for White Whale Lake) 54 kilometers west of Edmonton.
The Pavilion is equipped with public washrooms for beachgoers and is maintained and cleaned by the Summer Village. Previously vandalism has been a concern and security cameras exist to report damages to the RCMP. Signs with contact information for Village staff is posted at the facilities and if someone observes vandalism it is requested this be reported via email or call so we can establish a timeframe to provide video and photo of suspects to the RCMP.
Thank you for continuing to respect these facilities so they can remain open for everyone's use.
