The Village of Rockcliffe Park is a peaceful residential community with tree-lined streets and a tranquil lake at its heart. The Village consists of two major residential areas. The west side of MacKay Lake, “Old Rockcliffe” features a mix of houses built in every decade from the 1860s to the present and the east side of the lake was developed in the 1950s and 1960s. Large lots, few sidewalks and no commercial zoning makes it a delightful place to bring up a family.
Rockcliffe offers excellent schools, a local library, tennis club and well run community events including exciting speakers programs, fitness and bridge, two superb annual book sales, garden club lectures and more.
Home to many Embassy residences and Stornoway, the house for the Leader of the Opposition, Rockcliffe Park is a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood. Lush green space can be enjoyed at The Rockeries or at The Village Green. A heritage overlay preserves the character and ambiance of The Village which was an independent municipality until amalgamation in 2000.
