Community Recreation Co-op Agencies

To help increase recreational program offerings to Brookfield residents, the Brookfield Recreation Department may enter into cooperative programming agreements with other surrounding communities.

This co-op will allow residents to participate in more programs at resident rates. All programs from these communities are not co-oped, only those listed in the current Brookfield Recreation Program Book. Co-oped programs can be identified by their location, listed under the program’s description.

For additional information on a co-oped program, please contact the host agency. Refund and cancellation policies are determined by the host agency.

Communities currently offering co-op programs to Brookfield residents are listed below:

Community Park District of LaGrange Park
