Lakewood parks are safe, clean and fun!
Lakewood's Recreation and Community Services Department is dedicated to keeping our parks a healthy and fun place for kids to enjoy self-directed activities after school.
Clean, safe parks overseen by trained recreation staff are a great place for kids to be creative, active and to socialize with friends.
Kids can check out supplies to use while enjoying the park, and return to park staff when done, including:
- Playground equipment
- Board games
- Arts and crafts supplies
Park supervision hours adjust to school schedules to provide additional supervision on early dismissal days and holidays.
Check with your local park staff to see what other fun opportunities and programs are offered.
