Lakewood, Colorado

The City of Lakewood is a Home Rule Municipality which is the most populous municipality in Jefferson County, Colorado, United States. A relatively young city, incorporated in 1969, Lakewood has grown rapidly thanks to its prime location near the Rocky Mountain, excellent schools and high yield of cultural offerings and other diverse things to do.

Lakewood is the fifth most populous city in the State of Colorado with a population 145,000. Lakewood was first settled in the late 19th century and established itself early on as a summer resort district for wealthy Denver residents. In 1893, an electric tramway network (known as "the Loop") was established, connecting Lakewood with Golden and Denver.

The community continued to grow and in 1914 Colorado Christian University was founded in the city. In 1941 the Federal Government awarded what was then the largest contract in Colorado to the Remington Arms Company ammunition factory, which took root in Lakewood.

Lakewood has an abundance of ways to get closer to nature, with almost one hundred parks and two nearby amphitheaters, in addition to lots of other amenities. Recreation in Lakewood is abundant and multi-faceted. A collection of lakes provides plenty of opportunities to swim, fish and boat. 

In winter, the Rockies offer skiing in a variety of challenging forms. In summer, the mountains provide a breathtaking venue for fishing, backpacking, camping, and hiking. The REI Lakewood store is a premier outdoor gear and sporting goods store serving outdoor enthusiasts in Lakewood.

Lakewood is just 15 minutes west of downtown Denver and from a number of major league professional sports teams. Denver baseball fans can root for MLB's Colorado Rockies, while football fans can cheer on the NFL's Denver Broncos. NBA basketball action features the Denver Nuggets and fans of NHL hockey can follow the Colorado Avalanche. Fans of soccer and lacrosse have teams in the city also. Denver is home to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer (MLS) and also to the Colorado Mammoth of the National Lacrosse League (NLL).

The city’s top employer is the Denver Federal Center, but it’s also home to headquarters for Einstein Bros. Bagels, 1stBank and The Integer Group. The main campuses of Colorado Christian University and Red Rock Community College are located in Lakewood.
