Volunteer and Support the Parks



Get involved for a day and give back! Lakewood Parks hosts one-day volunteer projects for Earth Day, National Trails Day and National Public Lands Day annually. These projects are typically in April, June and September.


From building trails to park patrol, parks volunteers have many opportunities to assist in the great outdoors. Applications are accepted annually in winter/spring.

Donate to support Bear Creek Lake Park. Online donation coming soon. 


The City of Lakewood has two memorial donation programs: a memorial tree planting program and a memorial bench program. Both programs offer unique opportunities to remember your loved ones and create a lasting tribute. Learn more about the programs on the Memorial Trees and Benches page.

All donations are guaranteed for a period of ten years. During this time, the City will repair or replace the tree or bench when necessary. Donations are recognized by either placing a plaque on the bench, or placing the loved ones name on the Memorial Tree Planting Plaque which is located at the Lakewood Civic Center outside the City Council Chambers, at the Lakewood Civic Center.

For questions regarding these programs, contact Lakewood Parks at 720-963-5240.
