Burns Community Center has grand opening
The Lakewood City Council joined local residents in celebrating the renovation of the Burns Community Center with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, Nov. 12.
After 40-plus years of operation, the original Burns Center really needed some repairs and renovations. The old elevator was breaking down, there were disabled access problems, and water damage was showing up in various parts of the building.
"Now," said Mayor Steve Croft, "there's a new elevator, good disabled access, updated restrooms, and a remodeled community room that can be used by residents for parties and private functions. The newly renovated Burns Community Center should be an attractive, well-functioning asset in Lakewood for decades to come."
The Burns Community Center is home to Lakewood's Meals on Wheels program and the Mothers at Work childcare program. The Center is located at 5510 Clark Ave., just south of Mayfair Park. For more information, call 562-925-7512.
