The Lakewood Sister Cities Program is part of a global community that was formed in 1956, when President Eisenhower inaugurated the "People to People" program for the USA and the world. Lakewood joined the program in 1977 with our first Sister City relationship being with Sutherland Shire, Australia.

Lakewood has dedicated three parks to support to the Sister Cities Program:
