See the future of Arts, Parks and Recreation


We asked, you shared! Lakewood’s Community Resources Department completed its arts, parks and recreation master plan in 2017.


Thousands of residents contributed to the plan's development by giving us honest and thoughtful feedback. The six goals and 42 actions included in the master plan, which was adopted by Lakewood's City Council on October 23, 2017, are featured and explained on the Imagine Lakewood! project site.
