The City of Lakewood is unique in its devotion to open spaces including ten major parks offering public swimming pools, after-school programs, organized sports leagues, and family and community gatherings. A few of the parks in Lakewood include Simon Bolivar Park, Cherry Cove Park, and Jose Del Valle Park, affectionately known as “Airplane Park” due to the Douglas F3D “Skynight” jet fighter proudly displayed on the southwest corner of the park. Lakewood also has its own equestrian center and stables, the Lakewood Equestrian Center; this makes this city an ideal place to raise children or just enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle. Lakewood has less of the chaotic pace of some surrounding cities but holds its own in what it has to offer. Lakewood Center Mall is a large shopping, dining, and entertainment center offering popular eateries such as California Pizza Kitchen, Chipotle, and Fuddruckers, where they serve up gourmet and unique burgers. Lakewood Center has a wide range of shopping with everything from Costco to Macy’s. Lakewood is a strong community that enjoys holiday gatherings and special events year-round. All of these wonderful attributes make Lakewood an exceptional city to purchase a home.
