Marley Park’s clubs and groups provide a unique opportunity for residents to actively engage and connect. From professional, recreational, social, service, cultural, and athletic activities, Marley Park’s clubs help residents pursue common interests. The Marley Park Community Association invites neighbors to start new resident clubs that continue to make life in Marley Park enjoyable and rewarding.
Do you have an interest you would like to share with the community? Check out these clubs already formed by Marley Park Residents:
The Marley Park Aces Up Poker Club: Designed to give residents who enjoy the game of poker an opportunity to gather and to meet other residents in a social environment while playing poker. The club game is Texas Hold’em but other varieties of poker can be played depending on Club interest.
Marley Park Garden Club: Gardeners are wonderful at sharing. In fact, they will share just about anything from a start of their favorite plant to growing tips. Marley Park Garden Club members maintain their own individual gardens and a beautiful community garden located on the west end of Arbor Park.
Adventures Kids Club: This group is geared toward the 7-12 yr old crowd that is ready for more
independent decision making and input into their own club…who knows maybe even their own handshake.
Volunteerism is a vital aspect of life in Marley Park. Volunteers contribute their time, effort, and talent in service to Marley Park and the surrounding community of Surprise. They give of themselves to enrich the neighborhood and invest in the lives of others.
Within Marley Park, volunteers give of their time to make the community stronger by leading clubs, actively participating in and assisting at community events, and by contributing to our printed Neighborhood News and our online community, marleypark.net.
Outside our walls, our volunteers contribute their time at local soup kitchens and food banks, host charitable clothing drives, volunteer at Marley Park Elementary School, and organize charitable activities and fundraisers for various Northwest Valley charities.
Marley Park offers a special sense of community life and vision. A key component in developing those connections and achieving that vision is the Marley Park Community Association (MPCA), an Arizona nonprofit organization.
