Chaparral is located south of Fish Creek Provincial Park, immediately south of Marquis of Lorne Trail (Highway 22X) and east of Macleod Trail. The community at only a few years old was a venue for the 1997 World Police and Fire Games.
The community of Chaparral is built around a finely crafted man-made 32-acre lake. Development of the lake included a man-made mountain with alpine-style stream and two waterfalls. The lake is a haven for recreational divers, complete with groupings of 72-inch diameter concrete pipes and an underwater obstacle course. Activities available at the lake include tennis, fishing, boating, skating, beach volleyball, basketball, fire pits, sandy beaches, tobogganing, cook shelters, playgrounds, picnic area, horseshoes and recreation programs for children.
For the 2013 year, the fees are $307.41 for non-waterfront homes and $470.97 for waterfront homes. This is an annual fee paid once a year that covers the use of the recreational facilities for the whole family and your guests.
