The Parks and 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.
