The Prospect Road Recreation Association (PRRA) is comprised of representatives of various community groups that are active in the Prospect Communities, between the areas of Goodwood to West Dover. Our role is to manage the local area rate in partnership with HRM by way of grant applications for community recreation projects. Additionally, the PRRA also manages the mowing contracts for the sports and recreation fields and parks in the Prospect Communities as well as the outdoor washroom facilities.
