Community Gardens

Close up plants in Community Garden

The Lakewood Community Gardens (located on Candlewood Street between Woodruff Avenue and Palo Verde Avenue) offers a unique leisure opportunity to residents of all ages. The 3-acre site is divided into 323 individual gardening plots.

Visit the Community Gardens website.

Plots are currently available for Lakewood residents only on a first-come, first-served basis. Plot sizes are 10' x 15'.  There may be a waiting list for these popular spots.

The City of Lakewood provides water, general maintenance for the overall facility and you do the rest. For a yearly fee of $12.00, (January through December) residents can take advantage of Southern California's year-round growing season.
