Lakewood – One of Ann Arbor’s Premier Neighborhoods

Lakewood Subdivision in Ann Arbor is located off of Jackson Road, west of Interstate 94. Centered around Lakewood Elementary School, the neighborhood is full of trees, and is primarily composed of colonials, small ranches, and custom-built tri-level homes. Lakewood is just minutes from downtown Ann Arbor, Westgate shopping center, Quality-16 movie theater, Liberty Athletic Club and many other shopping and dining opportunities.

With such easy access to the freeway, and with so many convenient amenities, new residents are in for a delightful surprise. One of the more popular parks in Ann Arbor is Dolph Park. Dolph is bordered on the west and north by Wagner and Jackson Roads (two of Ann Arbor’s busiest). Parking is available in the main lot off Wagner Road. Despite being in the midst of city hubbub, the 57-acre Dolph Park has the only two naturally-formed lakes found in the City of Ann Arbor – First Sister and Second Sister lakes. The smaller of the two, Second Sister Lake, has a fishing pier, and spots from which to launch a canoe. There are benches throughout the trail system, and all trails are unpaved.

Lakewood Elementary School is located at 344 Gralake. The original school opened in 1961, and closed in 1986. The school reopened in 2001. Just this past March, the school Parent Teacher Organization hosted an auction which will provide over $25,000 worth of field trips for students next year! Next year, Lakewood will celebrate 50 years of providing a nurturing environment for local students. Lakewood neighborhood students who live north of Liberty attend Forsythe and Skyline High; students residing south of Liberty go to Slauson and Pioneer.

Lakewood features a wide variety of subdivisions and condominium complexes (including  Liberty Pointe, Liberty Oaks, and Summerfield Glen). Newer homes in Lakewood include a cluster of houses where properties are separated by fields of wildflowers, and another where executive homes perch on sprawling, hilly lots.
