Lakewood Neighborhood Information

Population / Demographics Lakewood

County: Pierce County

"Lakewood officially became a city on February 28th, 1996, making it the eighth largest city in the state. But look closely, and listen. You can still find the city's countless lakes, enjoy the shading streets, feel the exuberance of activity as citizens continue to enhance Lakewood. And possibly, just possibly, on a warm summer evening, you might hear echoes of the joyous celebration of Indians and early settlers camping out on The Prairie."
