LAKEWOOD – A project that would transform a popular park in Lakewood could break ground next spring.

The Lakewood Community Development Corporation says a state-of-the-art, all-inclusive playground, will be built in Hartley Park in spring 2022.

The playground will feature natural colors and several unique installations like a zipline, dual hill racing slides and a custom imaginative-play clubhouse.
