Lakewood is located along the shore of Lake Erie, 5 miles west
of Cleveland's Public Square. Lakewood is widely known as a "City
of Homes." It offers both the amenities of city living and
the charm of a small town. Solidly built one and two-family homes,
many with comfortable front porches, line its tree-lined streets.
Within Lakewood's 5.6 square miles there is a diversity in housing,
from modest single homes to luxury "Gold Coast" condominiums.
The northern section of Clifton Park, a residential neighborhood,
is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
Lakewood's population of 56,646 (2000 census) makes it the fourteenth
largest city in Ohio. The total number of dwelling and rooming units,
residential and commercial is 28,625, and the average household
size is 2.2 persons.
Lakewood is recognized for its excellent school system and outstanding
city services. And, Lakewood is cool! Cleveland Free Times, the
alternative news weekly with a readership of sophisticated, educated,
upwardly mobile, young adults, rated Lakewood at the top of communities
in Cuyahoga County in its June 22, 2005 issue.
As an older, inner-ring suburb, Lakewood has confronted many of
the challenges of today's urban areas, such as decrease in population,
increase in poverty, and aging infrastructure. As a mature community
with high-density development, it has not contributed to the broader,
regional problems attributed to exurban sprawl. The city remains
a stable, welcoming community with a rich past, a vibrant present
and promising future.
