Lakewood, Washington is perhaps one of the Northwest’s best placed communities. Imagine being so close to everything that defines living in Washington State. Many people discover Lakewood while stationed at Joint Base Lewis McChord. Others choose to live here because of its close proximity to the Puget Sound.
With the winter weather is behind us, Lakewood really becomes a great place to live. There are so many things to do and see outdoors here. If you really must, you’re only a few short minutes from everything Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia offer area residents. But, the truth is, once you have enjoyed a sunset on the shores of the Puget Sound in Lakewood, you’ll be tempted never to leave again.
One of the best places to enjoy the great outdoors in Lakewood is the massive 340 acre Fort Steilacoom Park. It caters to an amazing variety of interests with both active and passive recreation available. Boasting an extensive trail system, the park also offers baseball, softball and soccer fields. There is plenty of space to spread out a picnic. Bring Fido too, because Fort Steilacoom Park is pet friendly and features an off leash dog park.
When you consider that Lakewood, Washington is ideally situated near public transportation, the I-5 Freeway, SeaTac Airport, the Puget Sound, the State Capital (Olympia), Tacoma and Seattle, you understand why people choose to live here. It is beautiful, convenient and affordable living and best of all, you have all the best that the Northwest offers at your fingertips. The only thing missing, is you!
