Parks Recreation and Community Services

Our goal is to create a safe, vibrant and healthy community in Lakewood where people have access to a variety of resources and are inspired with the knowledge, skills and energy to be independent and of service to others. We will preserve and maintain park lands and open spaces to create safe places for people to visit. We will establish partnerships to ensure that a comprehensive system of programs, facilities and services are available to meet the recreation and human service needs of the Lakewood community. Parks, recreation and human services contribute to the vitality of Lakewood; encourage economic development, create neighborhood identity, reduce crime and negative health issues with prevention programs and improve the quality of life for our citizens.
