St. Albans Anglican Church
The St. Alban’s Parish, in Oak Lake in the Rural Municipality of Sifton, was formed in February 1888 through the endeavours of Rev. Charles Quinney. The church was built on land donated by the North West Land Company. Its architect was James Andrew and the contractors were Shaw and McLean. It was opened by Bishop Machray, Dean Grisdale, and Rev. Quinney on 22 June 1890. The building became a municipally-designated historic site in 1999 and a plaque beside the church was erected in 2001. Renovations were carried out as part of the Manitoba Prairie Churches Project.

Oak Lake, and the associated Plum Lakes, are located in southwestern Manitoba, southwest of the town that shares its name.
The lake is surrounded by a vast marshland about four times its size that is fed by Pipestone Creek and drained by Plum Creek. This extensive lake and marsh system and the surrounding area, generally in very flat terrain, contain a tremendous diversity of habitat. There is a blend of rivers and streams, grasslands, deciduous woods, willow scrub, and rocky areas, along with cultivated agricultural lands. Grasses and sedges border the wetland, and remnants of undisturbed native prairie can be found. Extensive dykes surround Oak Lake, which is artificially regulated by a water control dam. Close to the LUD of Oak Lake there are extensive sand dunes that are heavily treed with Bur Oak, Trembling Aspen, Creeping Juniper. Located slightly further north is the scenic Assiniboine Valley, which has a valley wall exceeding 100 m in height. More information can be found here.
Cherry Point is located on Cherry Point Road and has picnic area and has a walking trail where you can sit on a bench and watch the sunset.
