The City of Lakewood improved the waterfront in Harry Todd Park, which is on the south side of the 1,200-acre American Lake. The City built a fishing pier, replaced finger pier docks to support rowing shells and other human-powered boats, replaced the restroom and a failing bulkhead, and enhanced the swimming beach. The City also built paths accessible by wheelchair from the parking lot to the shoreline, replacing a path that required visitors to travel down a steep hill to get to the docks. Located in the Tillicum neighborhood, the park is the only community park in the area and the only park that provides free waterfront access.
