    Brook Park has been my hometown for the past seven years. I had graduated from High School in this city at Midpark High School. I have been involved in recreational athletics during my High School years and now during my College Years I have been a volunteer Youth Athletics Coach for the past three years in football, basketball, and softball. When I think of Brook Park I think of a friendly suburb of Cleveland, Ohio that is a welcoming town to anyone who would like to be a part of this city. I am involved in the politics within this city and am now a newly member of the Brook Park Boosters club as well. I have invested myself and time into this city because I love living here and I would always recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new place to call home.

    The school district (Berea City Schools) is better than some, but needs more funding. The district attempts to pass more levies for this every year, but has not succeeded yet. The current mayor of Brookpark is less than desirable and competent, even shut down a fire station and the rec center most recently.

    Brook Park is a nice, safe and friendly place to live. Everything is close including shopping, church and highways. Schools are rated good with good community services.
