I walked from my hotel to Belmar Park area, looking for this centre in particular. It is such a lovely location, especially near the lake where you can see huge birds nests high in the trees on a little island. What was awesome is that many of the buildings in the outdoors centre are re-located houses, shops and even an... More

You can enjoy the park setting, go to the gift shop (really imaginative, not the typical stuff) and even a show. Don't miss the wonderful Holiday Sale in Nov or early Dec.

We sort of stumbled onto this wonderful center; taking advantage of the wonderful walking trails and paths behind the Bel Mar Library, we were on a walk after visiting the library, and wandered over to check out the unusual buildings nestled down in the pleasant little valley, we were surprised to see such a comprehensive museum of early days in...

Lakewood has taken the initiative to acquire and restore early buildings from the area. The collections of builidings are both business and homes. this is an interesting colllection.

Roaming through the Lakewood Heritage Center makes for an interesting afternoon stroll but it would be so much more fun if you could actually go into more of the buildings that are there. The facades hold so much promise, but then, the facade is all you get. That said, they have some unique meeting spaces there, from the modernist chrome/silver... More

Loved the original old buildings and walking trails. It's a dog friendly park with a small pond in the middle. Great for history buffs that would like to know more about the area.

The Lakewood Heritage Center is a shiny new building that celebrates the 20th century. The interior while open and spacious only contains two rooms of exhibits, one changing and one that is focused on the development of Lakewood and the park that the Center is located in. Effort is given to make the exhibits kid friendly. There is always something... More

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!!!
