Private Guided Tours

Your group is welcome.

Lakewood is filled with history, art and architecture. One of our knowledgeable guides can lead your group on a fascinating tour. 

Your group may choose a leisurely walking tour spanning about a half mile, or you may bring a private bus for a visit that winds throughout our beautiful 250 park-like acres. (Lakewood does not provide trolleys or buses.) 

Along with our history, you’ll also learn about our status as a level 2 arboretum.
