Partnering with Lakewold

HouseLocated in Lakewood, Washington, Lakewold offers landscape architecture by Thomas Church surrounded by rare and native plants, State Champion trees, over 900 rhododendrons, 30 Japanese maples and stunning statuary. A Washington State historic landmark, Lakewold's Georgian-style mansion and historic architecture complete the 10 acres where visitors can step back in time to an elegant past or enjoy a relaxing moment to contemplate the future.

But, what does this really mean to you? By sponsoring an event or other opportunity at Lakewold, you are recognizing the importance of conserving 10 acres of open space within our growing communities. You are nodding approval at a historic landmark with preservation as a goal. You are recognizing the importance of education and horticulture. You value this place where all are welcome to discover their own inspirational experience. Thank you for your investment and recognizing a good business opportunity for partnership.
