Frequently Asked Questions
The Parks and Recreation Cooperative, PARC, began in 2003 in an effort to jointly serve the citizens of Maplewood, Brentwood and Richmond Heights. Residents of all three communities may use each other's parks and recreation facilities, including the Brentwood Ice Rink, the Maplewood Family Aquatic Center, and THE HEIGHTS, all at resident rates. We also offer programs, facility and park rentals at the reduced rate for our constituents as well.
Residents of Richmond Heights, Maplewood, or Brentwood will need a current photo ID along with one of the following: unpaid utility bill, last year's personal property tax receipt, or current occupancy permit. For a family membership an occupancy permit is required.
Weekend non-resident policy: in order to better serve our members and residents, weekend admission will be restricted to residents and members of THE HEIGHTS.

Generally, it is a good rule of thumb to not plant trees or other vegetation which will grow up into utility lines and require ongoing pruning and maintenance. Learn more about proper tree planting and care here.
The City of Richmond Heights currently provides planting and maintenance of trees located along city streets between the sidewalk and the street. If you would like to request a tree be planted or notice a problem with a tree within that area, please contact our City Forester at (314) 655-3656. Requests can be made anytime of the year but planting only occurs in April and November. Planting of trees within the right of way is covered under Municipal Ordinance 255.140.
The City of Richmond Heights Park Operations Division accepts donations to our Street Tree Planting Fund for the planting and maintenance of trees located along city streets between the city street and the sidewalk. For further information about donating contact our City Forester at (314) 655-3656.
