    vocabulary problem

    Can anyone please tell me if we can say "a big city hands young people the great chance to..."?

    Can we also say "activities take place in a limited extension"?

    No, that is not correct. You can say:
    There are limited activities available to young people in a village. or
    Activities for young people are limited in a village.
