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.

Diana was a wonderful host. Not only did she provide an abundance of breakfast items, she went out of her way to accommodate me by picking me up from the shuttle and dropping me off. Her home is comfortable, clean, and she goes above and beyond to ensure her hosts are well taken care of. I give her my highest recommendation as a host. Anyone who rents out her rooms will not be disappointed ;)
Very welcoming host. Provided comfortable room and plenty of amenities. Recommend for any long stays for transitioning veterans.
