American Lake Park
This popular park is located on the north shore of American Lake. American Lake Park is well groomed with plenty of tall trees, grass and a nice sandy beach. One can access the beach either by stairs or down a grassy slope. This well-kept park offers seven outdoor picnic tables and a covered picnic area that offers three to four additional tables. The covered area can be reserved by contacting the Lakewood Parks and Recreation Department or can be used for free on a first-come, first-served basis. The park also offers clean seasonal restrooms and an outdoor shower.
The upper grassy area has tall evergreens that offer shade in the summertime while not interfering with the beach area.
