Lakewood Village

Lakewood Village is a Sunnyvale neighborhood bordered by the Bayshore Freeway to the south and Avenida Alondra to the north, North Fair Oaks Avenue to the west, and Manzano Way to the east. In the middle of this community is not only the Lakewood Elementary School, but also the Lakewood Park and the John W. Christian Greenbelt, an extremely unique community feature for the area.

The 50s is an idyllic time in American history and this neighborhood, again, retains much of that same charm. Being great for families, it contains two schools, Lakewood Park, and two greenbelts, one which extends from Lakewood Park and another which extends from the California Young World School, though both are referred to as John W. Christian greenbelts. The California Young World School is a unique child development program with three locations in Sunnyvale, so parents of Lakewood Village are fortunate to be so close in proximity.

The beautiful community of Lakewood is also complimented by Lakewood Park. This park features two tennis courts, a baseball diamond, a playground, a large area of grass to play games, sports or simply enjoy, as well as multiple paved walking paths lined with large trees. However, the community also has easy access to the Bayshore Freeway, the Southbay Freeway and Count Route G2. As far as the convenience of dining within the borders of this small community itself, there is one shopping center off Lakedale Way that houses New Wing Yuan Market, Giovanni’s New¬†York Pizzeria, Hong Kong Saigon Restaurant and an In Style Beauty Salon and supply shop. Outside the community, Lion & Compass offers American dining with a fine cuisine edge, Wahoo’s Fish Taco NorCal provides quick and fresh mexican food, the Curry Bhavan Indian Restaurant delivers vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisine, and Homi Japanese Ramen provides flavorful and fresh noodle dishes. Like other nearby communities, Lakewood Village is largely defined by ethnic fare that is conveniently available.

When you are looking to get out and do something in Lakewood Village, besides enjoying the outdoor recreational spaces, the Neighborhood Movie Store is located around the corner, as is Pump it Up, a party zone for kids. A unique skate shop called the Aggressive Mall is also located nearby, particularly ideal for those who like extreme sports. A short distance from the community there are also several places to exercise, including Sunnyvale Health & Fitness, Smash Gyms, and FTW Martial Arts & Fitness.
