Sections of concrete park paths will be replaced in the coming weeks and months at O’Kane Park, 7101 W. First Ave., and Belmar Park, 801 S. Wadsworth Blvd. This trail improvement project kicks off in early January at O’Kane Park. Both parks will be completed by July. Signs showing work areas and estimated timelines are posted at the major park entrances and online at Lakewood.org/Projects.
More than two miles of aging and broken concrete will be replaced to ensure a safer and more pleasant experience for park visitors. In recognizing the importance of parks and open space to residents, Lakewood’s City Council funded the $1.2 million project in the 2017 budget.
As the park path repairs will impact trail routes and loops in both parks, park visitors are encouraged to pay attention to the maps and signs showing upcoming closures and estimated work schedules on-site and at Lakewood.org/Projects. For a more convenient and uninterrupted experience, visitors are encouraged to visit other Lakewood parks including Addenbrooke Park, 600 S. Kipling Parkway; Ray Ross Park, 680 S. Harlan St.; or Bear Creek Greenbelt, 2800 S. Estes St. For a complete list of Lakewood’s parks, visit Lakewood.org/Parks
