The administrative team at RARA works in cooperation with the City of Rochester, Rochester Hills, Rochester Community Schools and Avondale Community Schools to provide opportunities to all of our residents and guests in the greater Rochester area.  Our goal is to enhance lives and enrich community by creating recreation experiences that evolve as a result of trends, surveys, and evaluation.  We want everyone in the community to say "I play at RARA!"  If there is something you are looking for that we do not offer, let us know by clicking here.
