This place rocks!!! They have some of the actual buildings that were part of the beginnings of Lakewood. That is a school building, a home of one of the pioneers of Lakewood, a cattle auction buiding, and a lot more. Learn a little history through a first hand point of view while enjoying the magnificent grounds!!!

I have enjoyed going with friends to the out door music programs the last several years. The are on Wednesday nights on the lawn and are in expensive entertainment. You can bring a picnic to enjoy. They prohibit bringing alcohol but have beer and wine for sale.

This is where my husband proposed (on the bridge) but all of Belmar Park is wonderful to visit. If you go during Cider Days, you won't be sorry but just a walk around the lake is very relaxing and to see the wildlife in the lake is wonderful.

A variety of experiences from Concerts in the Park to Apple Cider Days. Truly enjoy going and watching the tractor pulls and watching the kiddies make apple juice for their cider. The heritage center has some really great displays and change frequently enough to keep you interested.

This heritage center is more than a museum, and a stage. It has actual period buildings with actual equipment and vehicles in an actual depiction of how life once was in the area. Much of it is outdoors, hands on, and very informative. It is also easily located right off a main road, inexpensive, and near a variety of shopping... More

This is a great cultural center with exceptionally well-done plays. We have enjoyed seeing many great musicals here.

This park has a great location near my new condo at Belmar, i.e., it is within walking distance and more important, you can avoid Wadsworth heavy traffic by accessing the underground tunnel below the roadway. This leads to the park. The park itself has a museum and historical buildings from Denver and Lakewood's past, with a few Art Deco type... More

I took my two sons (12 & 10) to a concert here. It is a very nice facility. There is free ample parking, you can bring in chairs, and a cooler. They also have food trucks there selling various foods. the prices are reasonable and it is a nice evening out under the stars.

This is a beautiful facility, and admission is free. The first room has a changing exhibit. It is always well displayed, but I am not always very interested in the display topic. The second room remains the same: twentieth century Lakewood, including the history of the park location. Again clean and nice, but not compelling. The best part is the... More
