After-School Activity Zone is open at Lakewood parks

Lakewood’s After-School Activity Zone is a free drop-in program for school-age children and preteens. City parks offer the supervised after-school activities Monday to Friday from 3 to 5 p.m. beginning Monday, August 19.

Kids can participate in playground games, arts and crafts, and get homework help in a properly supervised, safe and creative environment. Each Lakewood park has its own schedule of programs and activities.

Teens have the option of using the Lakewood Youth Center at Del Valle Park or the Teen Resource Center at Bloomfield Park as their afternoon hangout. Both centers have computers, filtered internet access for homework, game tables and video game systems.

Program schedules are available at Lakewood City Hall, at all Lakewood parks and at www.lakewoodcity.org/activityzone.

For more information, call City Hall at 562-866-9771, extension 2408.
