The Centre at Sycamore Plaza

Lakewood orga­nizes recreation pro­grams for residents of all ages. Programs for kids and adults are conveniently scheduled including
 Tot Lots, after-school centers and Lakewood Youth Sports. Adult sports and activily programs abound for working adults and seniors.

For seniors, we operate two community centers where resi­dents can have fun, take classes, get a nutritious lunch, and receive supportive advice on social services.

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.
