Local Lifestyle

The amount of outdoor spaces and recreational activities is undoubtedly one of the draws of this city, with Hayden Park and Bear Creek Lake Park being the most notable examples. Hayden Park makes up more than 2,400 acres of open space and is the second-largest park in Lakewood. Multi-use trails are a key feature of this park, in addition to the summit of the Green Mountain Trail. At the top of the summit, you can find the most captivating views of Lakewood and the Denver metropolitan area. The park also serves as a habitat for a diverse group of wildlife. Bear Creek Lake Park, on the other hand, comprises three different lakes and gives you serene water views and a tranquil ambiance.

Things to Do

Lakewood has many cute and engaging events that are worth your time. Cider Days is perhaps the most quaint of their celebrations. This event celebrates Lakewood’s agricultural history with live performances, delicious harvest treats, wagon and barrel rides, and a tractor pull. The festival features a diverse offering of vendors, demonstrations, exhibits, and children's activities, making it fun for the entire family.
Festival Italiano is a two-day event and another fun option. It takes place in Belmar and celebrates everything having to do with Italian heritage. Tasty food, artisan vendors, music, colorful sights, and entertainment reflect and pay homage to Italian culture. 
During the summer, Lakewood has its Big Boom Bash to celebrate the Fourth of July, and it’s as exciting as the name would imply. Some available amenities include food trucks, booths, family-friendly activities, and beer. What better way to celebrate America’s Independence than with a blazing firework display?
