Boasting a beautiful natural setting alongside top-notch city amenities, Lakewood offers the best of both worlds. Located just south of Tacoma, Lakewood is named for its several gorgeous lakes that offer opportunities for boating, water sports, and stunning views!

REALTOR® Colleen Cook and her clients especially treasure The Steilacoom Neighborhood in Lakewood, and here are her top 4 reasons why residents love it here:

1. Steilacoom Lake

The nearby Steilacoom Lake offers a wide range of activities to enjoy any time of year! Enjoy views of vibrant sunsets over the lake, and take in the view from Interlaken Bridge, a bridge that runs right through the middle of the lake.

2. Fort Steilacoom Park

This 340-acre park shows off several amenities to take advantage of, including a huge trail system, sports fields, an amazing playground, an off-leash dog park, picnic shelters, and more. There’s also plenty of parking

3. Lakewood Towne Center

4. The Beautiful Natural Setting
