Why do we have neighbourhood associations?
The City of Cambridge provides many recreational opportunities through a Community Development approach, which includes input from neighbourhood associations. We use this approach because residents of a particular community are the best people to determine the recreational and social needs of their own neighbourhood.
Community Assisted Playground Program

With the support of the City of Cambridge, neighbourhood associations work to offer an affordable and community-focused opportunity for kids through the Community Assisted Playground Program.

Children (ages 4 to 12) enjoy crafts, sports, music, games, and trips to fun destinations, while making friends, having fun and enhancing their interpersonal skills. Activity leaders trained in High Five Principles of Healthy Child Development and Standard First-Aid are in charge of all programs. Leaders also submit a police information check and receive support through volunteer Leaders-in-Training.

Programs take place at various neighbourhood associations, recreation facilities and schools across Cambridge.
