Nearby communities include Livelong (20 mins), Turtleford (30 mins), Glaslyn (30 mins) and St. Walburg (40 mins).

Swimming, fishing, boating and hiking are just a few of the activities that residents and visitors can enjoy. Unfortunately, there are no camping facilities in the resort village, but two public beaches, two boat launches and playground facilities are available for visitors.
Picnic In The Park
The Resort Village of Kivmaa-Moonlight Bay’s sixth annual Picnic in the park held this past Sunday (July 1st Canada Day). While the day started out rainy, by noon the weather had mellowed and the usual good crowd turned up resulting in another big success.
The beautiful lakeside atmosphere was enhanced by the excellent music of “Sister Grace”, a hilarious magical performance by “The Ginja Ninja”, the creative face painting of “Bobo the Clown”, “Ed Loewen’s popular wagon rides”, a delicious food booth supplied by LADRA, numerous vendors offering a wide variety of products, and of course the fundraising activities of Council which included a silent auction and raffles. The overall climate created by these participants provided an enjoyable time for all ages.
Council would like to thank everyone who came out and supported the event and especially all the generous donors and sponsors who continue be the backbone of fundraising efforts. A special shout out to Heavy Crude for the use of their barbecues and Dex Sandblasting for the beautiful paint job on the Dunk Tank.
Monies raised at this event will be put towards the mini golf, a project which is 100% funded by donations and fundraising.
Council is already planning next year’s event, which will be on Sunday June 30th, and it is requesting volunteer assistance to relieve its small workforce. If you can help with an hour or two of service please contact the office. The Dunk Tank will be available for rent at a cost of $100.
