In the 1880’s the CPR built the lake and the irrigation canal which lead to recreation in the region. Many trees were planted such as; Trembling Aspen, Paper Birch, Crab-apples, Poplar, Colorado Spruce, White Spruce and Green and Black Ash. The fire hall was then built in 1977 and Chestermere became a village.
