The New Brighton Residents Association (NBRA) is a not-for-profit organization established under Part 9 of the Companies Act by the builder in 2003, to professionally manage and operate several of New Brighton’s community features. Operated by the NBRA, the New Brighton Clubhouse is a year round recreational facility, consisting of a 6500 square foot building. Also on site are; 2 tennis courts, pickleball, a beach volleyball court, basketball courts, a splash park, playground, and a hockey rink. Members can gain access to these facilities using their issued membership card, and can also sign in guests. The Bell Tower amenity, pond fountains and community entrances are among a few of the other community features maintained by the NBRA.
In addition to maintaining community features, the NBRA also employs a full-time Recreation Team at the New Brighton Clubhouse, who is responsible for implementing recreational programs and events using various facilities and amenities within the park. To meet the needs of all of its members, the NBRA offers a variety of fitness, educational, and creative programs for all ages.
Communities with established Residents Associations have proven to benefit from their establishment, by having certain amenities and assets in their communities that would otherwise be difficult to implement. Research has also proven that these communities have greater community spirit and neighbour interaction through the program and special event offerings provided by their Resident Associations.
