Recreation is for everyone!

Everyone in the Lakewood community will have the opportunity to equally participate in, benefit from and enjoy parks and recreation programs and facilities. We are dedicated to enriching the lives of all people participating in Lakewood Parks, Recreation and Community Services programs. If you are interested in a class or program, but hesitate to register because of a developmental or physical limitation, please contact the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department at (253) 983-7887 or by e-mail at for assistance. Reasonable accommodations for special needs require three weeks notice in advance of the program start date. Participants needing individual assistance in programs, including toileting, transferring, eating, dressing or behavior intervention, must bring an attendant/companion to the program.

Gender Equity Statement

The City of Lakewood does not discriminate against any person on the basis of gender in the operation, conduct or administration of community athletic programs or sports facilities. Any citizen who feels he/she has been the victim of discriminatory treatment in violation of this policy should report the concern to Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department staff at (253) 983-7758 for appropriate investigation.

Lakewood Parks, Recreation and Community Services will follow the Clover Park School District’s Weather Advisory. If the school district is closed, all Recreation programs will be cancelled. If children have already arrived, parents will be notified to pick up their children immediately. If schools are delayed, programs will operate as normally scheduled, unless special circumstances exist. Please call (253) 983-7887 or (253)798-4090 for the Lakewood Senior Activity Center for up-to-date program information. Inclement weather can also affect park use and trail conditions. Please use caution when visiting parks and trails during poor weather.
