Moving to Lakewood

While the area now known as Lakewood was settled back in the early 1830s, it has only been incorporated as a city since 1996. The suburb of Tacoma has become a hub for young families, retirees, and people who prefer to live in an area on the outskirts of the big city.

The Lakewood population is the second-largest in Pierce County with about 59,500 people calling it home. There is an even balance of individuals living there, with a median age of 36 years old. The city has seen a great deal of development take place over the last few years, leading them to receive a Smart Community Award.

Thinking about moving to Lakewood? The All Ready Moving team has been serving the areas surrounding Olympia and Tacoma since the year 2003. Our professional Lakewood movers are the best in the business for both local and long-distance moving services.

Spread out between the ten lakes located within the city borders, Lakewood neighborhoods are comfortable, family-friendly, and safe. Oakbrook is one of the most popular local communities with access to the beautiful Oakbrook Golf Course nearby. Other neighborhoods in the area include Idlewild near Interlaken, Lakeview, Park Lodge, Tyee Park, and more.

You’ll never have to go far to find fun things to do in Lakewood with local parks and lakes seemingly around every corner. The largest location around town is Fort Steilacoom Park, which boasts sports fields, hiking trails, playgrounds, dog areas, and more spanning 340 acres of land. Lakewold Gardens is another great place to visit with its beautiful landscapes, plantlife, and the surrounding estate.

If you’re a parent wondering about your options for Lakewood schools, you’ll be moving into the Clover Park School District. The top two high schools in town include Lakes High and Clover Park High, while primary school locations are Lake Louise Elementary, Dower Elementary, Woodbrook Middle, and Hudtloff Middle. Central Washington University also has a Pierce County campus for local college students.

The biggest employer for Lakewood jobs can be found in the military at the local McChord Air Force Base with more than 50,000 personnel commuting to the base from nearby cities. The Clover Park School District is another large employer in the area with positions for teachers and other administrative staff. City hospitals such as the MultiCare Lakewood Clinic and urgent care centers also provide job opportunities in healthcare.

Lakewood weather follows a similar pattern of rain and temperatures to that of Tacoma, getting about 40 inches of rainfall each year. Winters rarely go below freezing temps and stay between the 30s and 40s at the coldest points. The summers are comfortable with varying temperatures that bounce between the 50s and low 80s, depending on cloud cover.
