The Centre at Sycamore Plaza
For seniors, we operate two community centers where residents can have fun, take classes, and receive supportive advice on social services -- one includes facilities for seniors to get a nutritious lunch.
Popular community events include Pan American Fiesta, Patriot Day, Concerts in the Park, the Block Party and Halloween Carnivals that bring Lakewood residents together and create a sense of community in our sometimes fast-paced and busy world. There is also a range of "family fun" events specifically created for families to gather and enjoy and event or activity as a group.
Since Lakewood’s founding in the early 1950’s, the city government and residents have taken great pride in creating beautiful parks and wholesome recreational opportunities for local youth. That commitment is alive and well today. Lakewood has dedicated staff taking care of its parks daily, ensuring they are in the best possible condition. Some cities facing tough budget situations have had to eliminate daily staffing at parks, leaving them open to abuse.
