There are many parks/green spaces in the area. Brookfield is an incredibility rural town, lots of country and farming. There is one nearby state park called Pershing Park. There are not many outdoor activities for leisure other than the occasional swings set at the parks, fishing at the city lake and the swimming at the city pool. The quality of the different city parks vary. One park in located in the middle of town, and is not very well maintained. On the other hand, the park that includes the city swimming pool is very nice and well maintained. Pollution is not a huge concern due to the fact that there aren't many factories in town and low population, but there are many open lagoons in Brookfield that concern me.
