Parks & Recreation Cooperative (PARC)


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.

The staff of Parks and Recreation Cooperative strives to continually educate our patrons on the value and benefits of participating in parks and recreation programs and services. We want to create public awareness by offering unique and dynamic events, activities and celebrations that reflect the benefits of what our profession represents. We offer the very best in leisure services to insure that from the moment a resident enters a facility or participates in a program, they will feel our commitment to quality.

By maintaining landscaping of City properties with seasonal plantings, the Parks Division creates a visually pleasant environment in which to live, work and play. They also create a safer environment by maintaining healthy trees on City easements, and by pruning or removing unhealthy trees, as well as by managing storm damage clean-up.
