Good Morning Lakewood/”Playful City USA”

New award confirms Lakewood is ‘playful’!

In recognition of Lakewood’s quality parks, playgrounds and recreation services, the city has won a 2014 “Playful City USA” designation. This is the fifth year in a row that Lakewood has received the honor. Playful City USA annual recognitions are made by the Humana Foundation and the non-profit organization KaBOOM! in an effort to promote children’s recreation and the creation of more places for children to play.

Lakewood’s Playful City USA strengths included:
• The city’s commitment to maintaining and improving its 12 parks, such as the expansion of the West San Gabriel River Nature Trail underway this year, a new tot-lot play area for Bloomfield Park that opened in 2013, and upgrades to Mayfair Pool also made in 2013.
• The free After-School Activity Zones operated year-round at Lakewood parks, where children can play, do homework and take part in sports leagues, all in a supervised setting.
• Family Play Day, held every year in August at four Lakewood parks, with activities to get family members playing together outdoors.

Before going into real estate in 2001, I worked in the medical field. Found it very rewarding helping others and decided to make a switch and help those, who want to achieve the "American Dream". As a homeowner, I know the importance of home ownership and nothing gives me more pleasure than to place those keys into the hands of a new homeowner. I look forward to helping you, with all your real estate needs.
