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.

Ottawa New Edinburgh Club Summer Day Camps begin

Registrations for ONEC’s Summer Day Camps, offering tennis, sailing, rowing, big canoeing and stand-up paddle-boarding (SUP), are up well over last year. Operating from July 2 to August 23, half or full-day participation is offered with pre- and post camp supervision.

ONEC has just started a new Junior Tennis Program for kids aged seven to 15 years of all skill levels, organized by the newly-appointed tennis coach, Chris Field. “His 25 years’ experience as a Junior Program Director and Performance Coach in Toronto and Miami, and of working with adults and kids of all levels, is excellent for us,” said Andre Barnes, ONEC’s Tennis Director. Adults will also benefit from clinics and private lessons.

ONEC Rowing is offering two additional Learn to Scull sessions on Monday and Wednesday evenings starting June 10. Other refresher courses will also be available. ONEC Sailing is attracting more young professionals. Training is provided at no charge in CL16s or single-handed Lasers. Once members are “checked out,” they can participate in the racing programs on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons.

Finally, Paddling, introduced in 2018, is continuing. Big Canoe Adventure Excursions (hosted by ONEC) organizes guided tours that explore historical, Indigenous and natural sites around Ottawa. Renowned canoeist Max Finkelstein will also be giving a Big Canoe course on June 15, 2019. See www.onec.ca/forms.

ONEC dates back to 1883 and is one of Canada’s oldest multi-sports clubs. For more information, visit www.onec.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!
