Welcome to Partners for Parks of Lakewood, Washington

Who we are:
Partners for Parks is a collaboration of Lakewood service organizations, community groups, educational institutions, military and businesses that have come together for the purpose of assisting in the improvement of Lakewood area parks.  Healthy communities need healthy spaces and places to gather, play and enjoy the natural environment.

Created in 2001, Partners For Parks (PFP) is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization We’ve successfully built a permanent restroom at Fort Steilacoom Park and are working on other Lakewood area park projects.


What we do:
Our primary function is to raise funds and provide volunteer labor and materials for specific park improvements like playground equipment, restroom facilities, picnic shelters, fishing piers and other recreational amenities.

Ft. Steilacoom Playground

Current Project:
In January 2014, the Partners for Parks board approved a multi-year commitment to renovate the trail around Waughop Lake at Fort Steilacoom Park.  Visitors of all ages walk, run and bike on the paved path around the lake for recreation.  For detailed information, please see the Current Project page.

PFP holds annual fundraisers such as the Car Show at the City of Lakewood’s SummerFEST event and PFP’s signature fundraising event, Black Tie & Blue Jeans.  You can also find us at events supporting the Lakewood community.


This year’s Black Tie and Blue Jeans Ball will be on July 25, 2015, at Ft. Steilacoom Park.
