On Sunday, October 29, the clear blue waters of the Lakewood High School pool become the coolest pumpkin patch in Lakewood. Children of all ages are invited to splash their way around the pool to find their pumpkin floating in the water.

The only parts better than the choosing your own pumpkin are the cool pool games played first. From the “slam a pumpkin basketball challenge” to the cannonball contest to the witch’s hat ring toss, there is something for everyone.

This event “splashes” off at 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 29 at the Lakewood High School pool. Participants should park in the rear of Lakewood High School (between LHS and the baseball stadium) and enter through the pool doors (where Robinwood Ave dead ends at LHS). Pumpkins may be limited so please pre-register so we have enough for everyone.  Pre-registration is $8. Children six years of age and under must be accompanied in the pool by an adult; there is no additional charge for the adult.

There are many community programs offered at the Lakewood High School pool, including early morning lap swims, learn-to-swim classes, swim teams for young and old – the list goes on and on. Our program information for the Lakewood High School Pool, and our other programs, can be found at, on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, all by searching for lkwdrec.
