Residents of Church Ranches enjoy seventy acres of private common lands and three lakes. (A fourth lake is private to residents whose lots are directly on the lake.) The lakes are stocked with trout for catch-and-release sport. They also feature docks, sand beaches and storage areas for non-motorized watercraft. The common lands have various trails that are accessible from different points in Church Ranches and a beach volleyball court. None of the common areas or lakes is open to the general public. Guests must be accompanied by a Church Ranches resident at all times. Church Ranches has regular security patrols on the common lands and trespassers are reported to the RCMP.
