The small city of Brooks is located within southeast Alberta, in the county of Newell. The Trans Canada Highway and the Canadian Pacific Railway run through the city, that is roughly 186 kilometres or 116 mi southeast of Calgary, and 68 mi or 110 kilometres northwest of Medicine Hat. The city has an elevation of 760 m or 2,490 ft.
The current region all-around the city of Brooks was originally a bison hunting ground for the Blackfoot and Crow peoples. Homesteaders just began moving into the area after Treaty 7 was signed during the year 1877, though the village did not have an official name until the year 1904. Because of a Canada Post sponsored contest, the region was named after a Canadian Pacific Railway Division Engineer from Calgary, Noel Edgell Brooks.
The Village of Brooks was officially created on the 14th of July, 1910, which just a year later became a town. The oil and gas industry helped to grow the town in the late 20th century. In the early 1980s, its population grew from 5,000 to 8,000. In 1996, the population exceeded 10,000 because of expansion at Lakeside IBP meat packing plant. During the year 2005, Brooks became a city, with a population of about 13,000.
The main recreation centre in the city is the Lakeside Leisure Centre, that consists of a curling rink, two arenas, an aquatic centre with a waterslide and wave pool, a fitness centre, a gymnasium, plus multipurpose rooms. The complex was renovated during 2005.
During the year 2010, the Duke of Sutherland Park was redeveloped. It features baseball diamonds, a soccer field, a playground and a 3,200 ft (980 m)
