Parks & Recreation
Chaparral is great when it comes to green spaces -- with small areas spread throughout the community -- and when residents are looking for a full-fledged park, it delivers as well.

This park and lake are truly what separates the community from other suburban neighborhoods in Calgary, only a select few of which have lakes, man-made or otherwise.
