Brookville Lake is the center of water sports, offering water recreation options including fishing, skiing, boating, swimming, canoeing, and more. The rushing White Water River keeps two canoe liveries active during the spring and summer season, and riders frequent the two horse stables for scenic back road jaunts. Several city and county parks abound with playground equipment, ball fields and tennis courts. Local merchants and residents sponsor an annual 4th of July fireworks display at the reservoir dam which is spectacular. For golf enthusiasts, Brooke Hill Golf Course is the local favorite. North of town Buck's Point features lakeview relaxation.
