Parks & Pools

ParkThe Rensselaer Parks Department maintains nine beautiful parks througout our community.  The parks are open to the public until 11:00 pm.  Park Board meetings are held every 1st Monday of the month at 6:00 pm at the Iroquois Park maintenance building.  The public is encouraged to attend.
Our parks provide recreation for all ages and we encourage everyone to utilize the many activities they have to offer.
The pool in Brookside Park generally opens on Memorial Day and closes the beginning of the school year.
