They had workout rooms, a clinic in there, a nice dining facility, pool rooms, man caves, everything you could want in a place. ...Read more Lakewood Reserve, A Juniper Senior Living Community reviews
Meridian Lakewood is a full facility where you go from independent all the way up to totally dependent living. It was one of the nicest facilities I visited.

Located just west of Denver and part of the larger Denver metropolitan area, the city of Lakewood is close enough to reap the benefits of a beta world city: the modern public transportation system, the first rate medical facilities, the predilection for the arts and culture exhibited by cosmopolitan centers everywhere, without the attendant population squeeze that comes from living in the center of it all. Surrounded to the west by national parks and lakes, the Rocky Mountains rising above the distant horizon, Lakewood independent living offers the best of both worlds.

One could also sample the heritage, culture, and arts of Lakewood among three separate facilities presenting engaging exhibits, education programs, historical experiences, performing arts, and cultural opportunities to the public. If hitting the links is on the program, within the city limits alone both Fox Hollow and Homestead Golf Courses offer fantastic views of the Rocky Mountains and downtown Denver. Or escape the city life altogether and relax on the winding hiking trails of the more than 99 parks scattered around Lakewood. With horseback riding available, camping in the hills, boating and fishing on the lakes and streams, nature itself offers a bounty of diversions to choose from. For instance, your aging loved ones may choose to polish up long neglected archery skills at the archery range here in Lakewood.
