Community Recreation Co-op Agencies
In order to increase recreational offerings to Brookfield residents, the Brookfield Recreation Department has entered into a cooperative programming agreement with the Villages of Lyons, Riverside, North Riverside, Community Park District of LaGrange Park, and other surrounding communities.
This co-op will allow residents of each community to participate in more programs at resident rates. Not all programs from the above communities are co-oped, only those listed. Co-oped programs can be identified by (CO-OP) after the program title. Make sure to check the location in the program description.
For detailed information on a program and once the program has started, please contact the host agency. Refund and cancellation policies are determined by the host agency. Contact information for co-op agencies is as follows:
