Lakewood is a city that is located in the center of the state of Colorado. It is the fourth largest city in the state and is part of the greater Denver metropolitan area.
Before incorporation in 1969, Lakewood was a community with policing provided by the Jefferson County Sheriff, a volunteer fire service, and with few street lights and sidewalks. The City of Lakewood was incorporated in 1969. At the time of incorporation the city population was already over 90,000.
The urban/suburban development of the community known as Lakewood was begun in 1889 by Charles Welch and W.A.H. Loveland, who platted a 13-block area along Colfax Avenue west of Denver in eastern Jefferson County. Loveland, the former president of the Colorado Central Railroad, retired to the new community of Lakewood after many years of living in nearby Golden.
Lakewood has a humid continental climate, which means warm summers and cold winters. The summer temperatures generally stay in the 80's Fahrenheit and the winter temperatures can dip below freezing for days on end. Most of the precipitation in Lakewood falls during the months of April through July.
There are several notable landmarks in downtown Lakewood. These include the Harley Davidson dealership on Colfax Avenue, Casa Bonita a Mexican restaurant in town, Lakewood Cultural Center which houses a theater and art classrooms, and the Lakewood Heritage Center which is a museum that consists of a collection of several historical buildings. The largest shopping center in town is the Colorado Mills.
The Denver Federal Center employs the most people in the town, followed by the Jefferson County school district.
Even though there are no sports teams in Lakewood, neighboring Denver is home to several teams including the Rockies (MLB) and the Broncos (NFL). The closest major airport to Lakewood is Denver International Airport, which services major domestic as well as major international carriers.
