Music in the Park

If you plan to have music at your event, please remember Brookview Park is located in a residential area in close proximity to neighborhoods and therefore we request that all music be kept at a low volume level so it does not impact our residents. If the music volume is not kept at a low level, your $100 deposit will not be returned. Your support is very much appreciated.
