Goal #2. Continue to take care of and improve Lakewood's existing parks, cultural and recreational facilities.
The Imagine Lakewood! statistically valid resident survey revealed that Lakewood residents love their parks and recreation facilities. However, we can always improve!
- 69% of residents think the Lakewood Link Recreation Center is in need of some improvement.
- 61% of residents think Green Mountain Recreation Center is in need of some improvement.
- 57% of residents think Carmody Recreation Center is in need of some improvement.
- 56% of residents think Bear Creek Lake Park is in need of some improvement.
