Lakewood Pools and Foster Pool Survey

With summer right around the corner, it’s time for Lakewood pools to open for the season.  Madison Park’s Becks Pool opens on June 2nd and Lakewood Park’s Foster Pool opens on June 9th. For more information about Lakewood public pools, please visit the Lakewood City Schools Recreation Department's website:

As I mentioned in the last issue of The View from Ward 2, next year Foster Pool will be undergoing renovations/redesign. Lakewood is interested in hearing your vision for the Pool, and  wants to incorporate your ideas into the final pool plans.

Andrews Avenue Block Club Meeting

I recently attended the inaugural Andrews Avenue Block Club meeting. Andrews Ave resident Jason Weiner organized the meeting and was able to publicize the event with the help of his neighbors. There was an excellent turn out. Residents received updates about Kauffman Park and the Lakewood Traffic Calming Program, and were able to discuss other day-to-day issues on Andrews. The meeting concluded with an activity called The Marketplace. During this activity, each participant either offers a skill or item to the group or articulates a need and, at the end, the participants connect with the people by either taking them up on their offers or by offering to fulfill their need. For example, one participant offered her extra perennials and to plant them if needed and another offered their kayaks and paddleboards for neighbors to borrow. I thought this activity was a unique and constructive way to learn more about neighbors and conclude the meeting.
