Recreation & Community Services
Lakewood’s online recreation class registration system makes it easier to find and register for classes.
The recreation catalog is available online only, as it enables us to quickly respond to the changes in public health guidelines.
You can still browse the catalog of Summer 2020 offerings at www.lakewoodcity.org/Summer2020Rec.
You can see the virtual-only offerings for summer at www.lakewoodcity.org/VirtualSummer.
The Fall/Winter catalog is available at www.lakewoodcity.org/Catalog.
How to Register
Before you can register for classes, you will need to create a new user account. The process is quick and easy.
To set up a new account prior to registering for a class, click www.lakewoodcity.org/newaccount.
If you already have set up an account on the new system, just click www.lakewoodcity.org/ecatalog to register. Then enter a keyword or the number for the course or activity you want to sign up for in the search box.
Recreation programs for all ages
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 activity programs abound for working adults and seniors.
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 Am Fiesta, Patriot Day, Concerts in the Park, 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 an event or activity as a group.
Since Lakewood’s founding in the early 1950s, 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.
