Adaptive Recreation

Adaptive Recreation group

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Adaptive Recreation and Special Olympic Programs have suspended programming until further notice. We continue to carefully monitor the public health guidelines so that when we can reopen, we will be prepared to ensure the safety of our staff and participants and offer many of the activities described below.

Lakewood offers an Adaptive Recreation Program (ARP) at Bloomfield Park. 

Recreation staff plan, implement, and supervise weekly activities for the drop-in participants.

Participants meet every Tuesday, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. 


Activities include arts and crafts, athletics, life skills workshops, special events, and small trips to local businesses.

In addition to weekly programming, Bloomfield Park staff facilitate at least one special event each month for participants. 


The program is free, aside from a small fee for special events and/or trip days. Additional program support comes from the Lakewood DASH Transit program which provides free transportation to and from the program for Lakewood resident participants. 

Participants must register for the program on a yearly basis.
