The Lakewood Development is located ten minutes southeast of Terre Haute adjacent to the Town of Riley. Lakewood is a carefully planned and restricted development surrounding the 26 acre Lakewood Lake. This cozy community offers most any amenity needed, in addition to being uncongested with convenient highway access in any direction. The most common comment by residents and visitors is that it is “peaceful and quiet”, followed by the excellent reputation of the newer four star Riley Elementary School.
For those exercise buffs, Lakewood’s streets are perfect for walking, jogging, or bicycling around the community and the Lakewood Lake. In addition, walking along the historic Wabash & Erie Canal that was abandoned in the 1830’s, is truly refreshing. Still to this day, timbers are visible embedded in the stream bed, which are remnants of a set of locks used to raise and lower the water level in the Canal.
