The Rockcliffe Park Foundation

Welcome to the website for the Rockcliffe Park Foundation (RPF). Rockcliffe is a unique neighbourhood with strong community spirit, a rich history dating back to 1864, and a beautiful and varied natural environment. It is this remarkable community, history and environment that the Rockcliffe Park Foundation (RPF) 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.


The RPF is a registered charity which was established in 1996 when the Village of Rockcliffe was amalgamated with the City of Ottawa.  The RPF safeguards and manages an endowment fund, encourages residents to build the endowment, and provides grants for programs and services to benefit the community. The RPRA manages and coordinates these programs, and more.


The RPF mandate areas are:  


Conservation of the Environment

Rockcliffe's green space, tree canopy and water bodies are defining features of our community and need to be protected and conserved.


Preservation of the Heritage Character of the Village

Rockcliffe's designation as a Heritage Conservation District will be supported and protected from encroachment that could undermine this designation.


Promotion of a Sense of Community

The RPF supports developing community-building programs including a vibrant and sustained recreational and interests program that appeals to residents of all ages.


The Rockcliffe Park Foundation is grateful to its donors, past and present, and to the Rockcliffe Park Residents Association, www.rockcliffepark.ca, which plans and implements the projects and activities in our community.
