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.
