Our community of Overbrook has gone through numerous changes over the years. The volunteers of the Overbrook Community Association (formerly known as the Community Council of Overbrook) have worked hard to ensure that developments and changes enhance rather than detract from our neighbourhood.
With the rapid changes being planned, it is more important than ever that the OCA remains active and strong in the community.
