Belmar Shopping + Dining District is a vibrant reinvention of downtown Lakewood that evokes the ambiance of an old town village center. The district is based around a central plaza, ringed with cafes, that hosts concerts during the summer months and transforms into an ice skating rink during the winter. From there, Belmar spans 22 square city blocks, with restaurants, art galleries, coffee shops, a movie theater, a bowling alley and clothing and specialty stores. Near Belmar is the Lakewood Cultural Center that features a 320-seat theater and rotating visual art exhibits in multiple gallery spaces. The surrounding city of Lakewood offers excellent access to the outdoors, including Bear Creek Lake Park. The Lakewood Heritage Center is the home to indoor and outdoor exhibits, exploring the city’s history, culture and natural wonders. See the neighborhood map below to start exploring.
