Lakewood is an exceptional, upscale, lakeside neighborhood located in the beautiful Phoenix area, offering year round resort-style living. Stately homes are accented by mature landscaping and beautiful lake views are framed by distant mountain backdrops. Two manmade lakes accentuate this great community, providing residents oasis-like refreshing views of water as well as boating and fishing fun. Pontoon boats, paddle boats, and kayaks are all welcomed on the lakes and anglers can fish from their own docks or from boats with small electric outboard motors. Spraying fountains add visual interest to the lakes and also serve to aerate the water helping to keep the water’s ecology healthy for the fish which inhabit it. The Lakewood community is further enhanced by a lush green belt which, interestingly, forms a natural land bridge that dissects the two bodies of water, and provides a path suitable for walking or biking.
The greater Phoenix area provides countless diversions for the residents of Lakewood to explore. Golfers will be pleased with the proximity of Foothills Golf Club, a public 18 hole, 72 par, regulation length course which also has a driving range with 40 tees. Nearby Vista Canyon Park features paved walking and biking paths, a well maintained children’s playground, huge grassy fields, as well as volleyball and basketball courts. Art lovers should make time to take in the exceptional Heard Museum, located in Phoenix, which houses over 32,000 pieces of cultural and fine arts. While in Phoenix, don’t miss a perennial favorite, The Phoenix Zoo which, surprisingly, is open to visitors 365 days a year. For those that want to commune with nature, South Mountain Park offers 50 miles of equestrian, hiking, and biking trails on its over 16,000 acres; and a trek up to Dobson Lookout is well worth the effort as it affords spectacular views of the Valley of the Sun. Whatever your heart desires, it can be found in the greater Phoenix area; and the exceptional Lakewood community can be where your dreams of lakeside living, and all that it can bring, come true.
