Safety Flag System

Lake Chaparral Residents Association Flag Policy

Please observe the Flag Warning System posted at the Park:

  • Red Flag: Water Front / Lake Ice is Closed/Dangerous to all users.
  • Green Flag: Water Front /Lake Ice is Open for use. 

The lake staff closely monitors the safety of the lake ice for public use both in the fall and spring. Regardless of the Flag Warning System and the presence of a green flag, the nature of the lake ice makes its access and use inherently risky by nature, and all access and use of lake ice is at the sole risk of the member or their guests. The lake staff cannot guarantee the lake ice is free of all risks.

Ice fishing and skating on the lake will only be permitted when the Chaparral Residents Association determines so; a Green Flag will go up and all “DANGER THIN ICE” signs will be removed.
