Recreation Center Memberships
The Bridgeton Recreation Center offers a variety of membership options for residents of Bridgeton, non-residents, and we now offer Business Advantage Memberships for those who work in the City of Bridgeton. You choose the level of membership that best meets your needs and budget!
* With this option, the city will automatically withdraw monthly payments from the member’s checking or savings account and electronically deposit it directly into the city’s account. Memberships and payments will automatically continue until the department is notified (30 days prior to the cancellation date) in writing to discontinue the membership, or at the end of 12
months. An activation fee of $25 will be applied to all monthly payment options. This fee is due at the time of membership registration and is used to offset bank fees for the service.
What do you need to prove residency?
You must be a legal resident of the City of Bridgeton and present a valid photo I.D. (Missouri driver’s license or Parks and Recreation I.D. card) AND one of the following: a current, unpaid utility bill, current voter’s registration card or personal property tax receipt bearing your name and address. For new residents, a Bridgeton occupancy permit or valid lease will be accepted in lieu of non-photo I.D. requirements. If you do not have the required proof of residency, please contact a departmental supervisor to arrange for alternative methods of identification.
What does the center membership include?
Membership includes use of the indoor aquatic facility, gymnasium, walking track, and fitness center. Please note the availability of the gymnasium and pool are subject to change depending on scheduled activities. Members are eligible for reduced rates on classes, activities and services offered at the center; invited to participate in special, no-cost promotions (i.e. Bring a friend to class, new program intro- ductions, etc.); and to receive reduced rates at the Bridgeton Crossing
Family Aquatic Park.

Non-Resident Business Owners Parks and Recreation ID Cards
The City of Bridgeton extends the same parks and recreation privileges afforded our residents to the non-resident business owners within our community and their immediate family members. These privileges include reduced rates on Bridgeton Recreation Center admission fees, pool admissions, golf course greens fees, facility rentals, recreation programs and more!
Privileges are only extended to the person(s) identified on the City of Bridgeton Business License as the owner or managing officer and their immediate family. Immediate family is defined as no more than two adults and all related children under the age of twenty-three and living at the same address. To apply, bring a copy of your current business license and one form of photo identification to the Bridgeton Community Center, and request a Non-Resident Business Owner ID Card. In the case of clergy from Bridgeton religious organizations, the following guidelines also apply: only one Pastor/clergy member per organization. You must bring with you a utility bill, or other officialy piece of mail for the church/religious organization showing the pastor/clergy member's name, the name of the organization and a Bridgeton address.
The cost of each card is $10 and it allows you to receive your privileges for twelve months from the date of issuance. For your convenience, we recommend that once you’ve established your household that you bring your entire family at the same time to get their first cards. Once your family is in our system, it will make future renewals much easier.
Each member of the family 4 years of age and older will need cards to use park facilities and participate in organized activities. Family members, 18 years of age and older, are required to provide photo identification indicating that they reside at the family address.
The parks and recreation department will occasionally take photographs of people participating in recreation programs or using the facilities. These photos may be used for the department’s publications, brochures and flyers. All photos become the sole property of the department. If you do not wish to have your picture published, please inform the photographer.
