A healthy community is one that engages all its residents, giving them reasons to explore and connect beyond their own four walls. Our Residents’ Associations make this happen.

Here in Edmonton, three Brookfield Residential communities are home to thriving Residents’ Associations (RAs). These RAs are professionally managed and operated not-for-profit companies which enhance belonging and elevate the overall quality of life for community residents. In The OrchardsChappelle Gardens and Lake Summerside, the RAs are the heart of the community where everyone is welcome – and there’s something for all ages and abilities.

Having Your Say

The Chappelle Gardens RA values the input of community members. There are lots of ways to get involved:

  1. Participate: Take part in the programs and events offered by the RA.
  2. Join the social committee: Volunteer opportunities are available for those who want to contribute.
  3. Run for the board of directors: The board consists of resident directors voted in by the community. They help educate the community and represent residents in RA-related matters.

The Chappelle Gardens Residents Association isn't just an organization. It's the heart of the community. It's a place where residents come together, build lasting connections and create cherished memories.

Each RA also provides a wide variety of recreational programming for individuals, families and the whole community. They host special community events and have various spaces and facilities that residents can rent for parties, club meetings and special occasions. Because many of the RA employees also live in the communities they serve, they are passionate about making sure every program, activity or event brings neighbours together and fits their growing needs.

Residents can meet new friends at one of the many free community events, clubs or programs hosted throughout the year including book, wine and card clubs, cooking and art classes, movies in the park and more. Others stay active with things like sports clubs, fitness classes or karate lessons. For the kids, there’s everything from baby and toddler playgroups to dance classes, music lessons and engineering and coding classes to keep them playing, learning and growing.

All residents enjoy exclusive membership which provides access to awesome amenities, events and programs. With new things to do every season, all year-round, Brookfield Residential and their RAs are making sure that residents in these communities never fall short of ways to keep the whole family entertained, active and connected to neighbours.
