Manor Park Community Council
providing recreational programs in our community for 35 years!
The Manor Park Community Council (MPCC) aims to help build a strong and liveable community by providing residents with activities that develop their minds, bodies and community spirit.
The MPCC provides recreational programs to participants in the greater community. The MPCC manages the Community Centre and takes pride in our parks and sports sites. We draw on local talent for volunteers and employees with collaborating with others whenever possible. As co-publisher of the Manor Park Chronicle and manorpark.ca, the MPCC supports the exchange of ideas in a well-connected community.
The MPCC operates year-round as a not-for-profit organization with a team of employees under the direction of a volunteer Board of Directors.
Core programs include:
‘Before- and After-School in Manor Park’: licensed childcare operated as a 3rd party provider for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB). Program includes games, crafts, sports and homework time for elementary school children from kindergarten to grade 6. Interesting activities and engaged instructors make this program a hit with children. Families enjoy the flexibility for attendance and fees. Programming takes place in the Manor Park Public School on instructional days designated by the OCDSB calendar.
Manor Park Playschool: where preschool- and kindergarten-aged children learn through play. Early Childhood Educators guide a themed, bilingual program that includes literacy and music. Half-days, Monday through Thursday. ‘Toddler Time’, for children 18-30 months on Friday mornings beginning in February 2013.
Sports: an introduction to a variety of indoor and outdoor sports at the recreational level . For children aged 4+, soccer, baseball and rugby plus skating in the winter are the most popular outdoor sports. Indoors, soccer, floorball-hockey are offered for children. Adult fitness is booming with Zumba, ‘Totally Toned’ and Nordic Walking!
Summer Day Camps: a half-day format of themed camps led by experienced (and enthusiastic) instructors are the secret to these campsí success! Free lunchtime supervision is available to those who wish to attend both morning and afternoon sessions. These camps sell out!
Special Events: community and family oriented activities offered free (or at nominal cost) year round. Events include: Skating Party and Chili Cook-off (February); “Hydration and Cheering Station’ for the Ottawa Marathon (May); Wonderful Wednesdays (July and August); ‘Rock the Block’ (September), and ‘Movie Night’ (December).
