Welcome

Welcome to one of the most historic residential neighbourhoods in Ottawa! The Village of Rockcliffe Park is like no other, offering not just abundant green space and beautiful homes, each with their own intrinsic character, but also a very special sense of community. It offers excellent schools within walking distance and recreational activities to fit almost every taste and stage in life – from walking, cycling, swimming, tennis, rowing and sailing, skating, cross country skiing and snowshoeing to a variety of indoor activities scheduled at the community centre. And all this just minutes from shopping along Beechwood Avenue and downtown Ottawa!

The Rockcliffe Park Residents Association (RPRA) is comprised of dedicated volunteers who help foster a spirit of community within the Village of Rockcliffe Park, preserve and enhance its special heritage character and unique natural environment. It also represents the interests of Rockcliffe Park residents and works to benefit future generations.

Through this website, a bi-monthly newsletter and email updates, RPRA members are kept informed of issues facing the community, local events and activities. We encourage you to join our association, to find an activity or event that interests you and to get involved!  Please send your comments and questions to secretary@rockcliffepark.ca.

Fletcher Wildlife Garden Annual Native Plant Sale @ Fletcher Wildlife Garden Interpretive Centre

Fletcher Wildlife Garden Annual Native Plant Sale

Help pollinators and butterflies, attract birds to your backyard. We’ll show you which native plant species are favourites with wildlife at the FWG and which species will do well in your growing conditions. We have milkweeds for monarchs, asters to suit any garden location, goldenrods, blue-eyed grass, bergamot, beardtongue, a few native grass species and hundreds of other species from our own garden. New this year: Native Lupine, Blue False Indigo (not locally native), New York Ironweed, Fringed Gentian (we hope). A plant list will be available closer to the sale date.

Our guest vendor this year will be Beaux Arbres Nursery (beauxarbres.ca). The Fletcher Wildlife Garden (FWG) is a long-term project of the Ottawa Field-Naturalists’ Club, run by volunteers for the enjoyment and education of all Ottawa residents, and open for everyone to walk the trails, enjoy the garden and pond area, and learn about native plants. Our Annual Native Plant Sale is an opportunity for people to buy local plants and find out which ones are suitable for their own garden. See details at ofnc.ca/programs/fletcher-wildlife-garden.
