What is the Plant Pool Recreation Association (PPRA)?
The PPRA is a non-profit, community-based organization, drawing membership from citizens city-wide. Some members are concerned about community development, while others are past and present users of Plouffe Park, the pool and recreation facilities.
Membership is open to all interested persons, and involvement can be geared to your schedule. Some members are signed on in a support-only category, or for specific programs/events, while others take an active role in programs, meetings and advocacy.
YOU are welcome to join in any capacity!
PPRA at Work…
The PPRA also provides free swim passes to the Plant Recreation Centre pool for families in our community.
Partnering with local schools to provide swimming lessons for school age children at the Plant Recreation Centre pool is another PPRA initiative. Along with increasing access to the pool and weight room for local non-profit programs.
In the summer, PPRA volunteers assist with maintaining the street view garden.
Finally, the PPRA is also partnered with the City of Ottawa’s affordable fitness program for women, “Women Alive”, and the “Seniors Connection” program.
PPRA programs are supported by fundraising/donations and invaluable volunteer efforts.
