Rockcliffe Park Heritage Conservation District Plan
The goal of the Rockcliffe Park Heritage Conservation District is to preserve the unique character of the Village as a picturesque community, characterized by its curved streets, rich mix of housing types, large lots with generous setbacks surrounded by a variety of trees and shrubs. The preservation of the existing landscape to the fullest extent possible is strongly encouraged.
Because the entire Village is a Heritage Conservation District under the Ontario Heritage Act, any proposal to make major changes to the exterior of a building, demolish a building or construct a new one, requires City Council permission. If you are contemplating such activities, you should contact the RPRA Heritage Committee because it advises City heritage staff on applications and also contact City heritage staff early in the design process.

Rockcliffe Park from A to Z
Rockcliffe Park, a Heritage Conservation District, is a neighbourhood in a beautiful park-like setting with strong community spirit and a rich history dating back to 1864.
It is this remarkable community, history and environment that the Rockcliffe Park Foundation and the Rockcliffe Park Residents Association (RPRA) are committed to supporting. While these two key neighbourhood organizations are distinct, they are linked in practice, history, and by shared values. Board members of both organizations are volunteers. The Foundation works closely with and provides grants that support the RPRA. The RPRA manages and coordinates community programs and initiatives, and represents the interests of Rockcliffe residents. These are divided into three core mandate areas: community building, heritage and environment.
More information on these two neighbourhood organizations can be found on the websites rockcliffeparkfoundation.org and rockcliffepark.ca.
Rockcliffe Park A to Z is an introduction to Rockcliffe and the community resources in and around the neighbourhood. Compiled by the RPRA and funded by the Foundation, we hope you will find it both an informative resource and one that reflects some of the many reasons we are fortunate to call Rockcliffe Park home.
Because this beautiful publication is quite large, it’s been split into three parts to be able to share it online.
