Community Gardens

Flourishing flowers and veggies fill out the Ute Park Community Garden.

There are currently several community gardens in Lakewood which are managed through a partnership with Denver Urban Gardens (DUG), an organization that helps and enables local residents to join together and garden in a communal setting.

Three gardens are located on Lakewood park property; Ute Trail Community Garden, Gray Street Community Garden and Jefferson Green Park Community Garden. Many more are located on school and assisted living properties.
