Sutherland Shire and Lakewood City Sister City Relationship

Lakewood, Colorado, USA, and Sutherland Shire have enjoyed a sister city relationship since 1978.

Lakewood City named a local reserve Sutherland Shire Park and the adjacent road Sutherland Shire Boulevarde in 1978 in recognition of this relationship with Sutherland Shire. 

Lakewood City Reserve in Bonnet Bay is named after Sutherland Shire’s sister city, which opened in 1983.
