About Us

The Brookfield Heritage Neighborhood in East Lansing, Michigan is a beautiful place to live. With approximately 100 homes, our streets are lined with elegant trees that provide a comforting shade to the neighborhood. The homes, built between 1920 and 1950, are largely owner-occupied in this friendly, safe neighborhood. The mature trees on our streets provide the perfect ambiance for our annual neighborhood picnic in September.

Local Parks: Welcome Park on the corner of Grand River and Hagadorn

Local Schools:
Marble Elementary
MacDonald Middle School
East Lansing High School

Little Free Library for Brookfield Neighborhood

Support plans for a Little Free Library for our neighborhood! We will be having a bake sale (sourdough bread, cookies, etc.) and lemonade stand on Saturday, July 16 from 11a-2p in the Robertsons' driveway at 240 N. Hagadorn to raise money for supplies. Extra funds raised will be donated to the neighborhood tree fund.

We are accepting donations of building materials at 219 Oakland Drive on the front porch (plywood, treated 4x4 posts, plexiglass, roofing materials, door hardware).

Keeping Our Trees Healthy

Brookfield Heritage Neighborhood Association was formed in the 1970s to renew the Neighborhood covenants and also to protect and restore the streetscape of silver maple trees. Initially, the Association was able to obtain small grants from the City for tree replacement but when these grants ceased, the Neighborhood took over funding for tree replacement. Forty trees have been replaced and paid for by donations, fund-raising activities, and dues. At present, each tree costs approximately $350 plus planting and therefore represents a considerable investment by the Neighborhood.
