The Bridgeton Recreation Center has multiple meeting rooms and recreational facilities available for rent. Rooms are ideal for parties, family reunions, and bridal and baby showers. We can provide party-style setups with tables and chairs, theater-style setups with chairs only (ideal for meetings), and we also offer narrower conference-style tables ideal for off-site corporate meetings, events, and trainings.
Hourly fees include the use of the room as well as tables and chairs. Ice is available for purchase. Note that there are special fees for each hour beyond normal operating hours of the Recreation Center. Other prices may apply for community organizations and/or fundraising events. Please contact the BRC for more details.
