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.

Beechwood Market mini-market

The Beechwood Market is part of what makes our area so special. It has become a go-to destination for shopping, tasting and mingling, and might be one of the nicest things about a summer Saturday morning in our neighbourhood.

Chartwell New Edinburgh Square will provide some of this same charm starting on July 4, when the Beechwood Market sets up a mini market on our MacKay Street terrace (420 MacKay Street at Beechwood). You can stock up on essentials such as free range eggs, maple syrup, honey, and much, much more. There will be seasonal fresh and local produce, of course, plus food, music and refreshments. The mini market will run every Thursday from 3:00 to 6:00 pm until October 10.

Good neighbours, supporting good business. Please drop by and say hello!

Hot Topics, Hot Coffee at Chartwell New Edinburgh Square

Why not drop by Chartwell New Edinburgh Square’s main floor lounge if you’re in the neighbourhood? The coffee is hot and so are the topics. We have a unique and very special bistro coffee shop with exciting issues thrown in as a bonus.

We meet every Friday morning; discussions range from international news to current and local issues. Residents, guests and occasional special guest speakers follow the polls, enjoy behind-the-scenes intel, consider the latest political intrigue, and will be discussing the riveting presentations by our leaders as they shift into high gear for the October election. As a respected journalist and recent guest speaker Don Newman commented, “they are all only a scandal away from defeat.”

The media flurry and the challenge of understanding the current issues surrounding deferred prosecution, proportional representation, pipelines, Brexit, trade agreements and rule of law will give way to other pressing news stories. Adrian Harewood, CBC anchor and journalist, dropped by recently and spoke about the importance of stories. Well, at Chartwell New Edinburgh Square, we love stories, and we love to discuss them!

Your hot coffee is ready and waiting.
