If a resident needs access to the lake access pathway please contact the office a minimum of 5 business days prior to scheduling any deliveries or work so that appropriate arrangements can be made to gain access.

The chemical balance of the lake is a top priority with our staff. We all want our water safe and for the ecosystem to be friendly to our fish. We ask that residents do not apply chemicals to control algae/weeds. The Lake/Park staff regularly apply eco-friendly chemicals for this purpose. Please contact the Facility Office before using any chemicals. Please do not drain anything from your backyard (ie; hot tubs, chemicals, etc.) into the lake as it can have major affects on the lake ecosystem
Dock maintenance of private docks is the responsibility of homeowners and must follow the specifications of the Chaparral Residents Association.
The lake staff closely monitors the safety of the lake ice for public use both in the fall and spring. DO NOT go onto lake ice before Lake/Park Management advises it is safe to do so. Please be aware that notification will be sent to Lake/Access homes when thin ice signs go up and come down. Please address any questions to the Lake office at 403- 254-4148.
Lake Staff do not maintain private skating areas.
Lake Access private walkways are not maintained in the winter.
Please be aware that noise really carries across water, please be considerate of your neighbors.
