Parks & Recreation

Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for residents of all ages by developing and maintaining parks, open space and trails, and public facilities and providing quality recreation and senior citizen programs that maintain a balanced sense of community.


The Brighton Parks and Recreation Department manages over 960 acres of municipal parkland including neighborhood, community, special use, and natural resource parks. We also have over 27 miles of trails, 20 athletic fields, two pools, a recreation center, and 19 playgrounds.

We hope you will enjoy your journey with a personal visit to our many parks, open spaces and trails in Brighton. It is a great way to connect with nature and the community.
