WG Outdoors Overview

Washington Grove is an “outdoors” place, with activities and events taking place year round in our woods, parks, and recreational facilities.

The Grove is renowned for its walking paths. In the older sections of town, houses front on walkways, with vehicular access only to the backs of houses. The paths continue in our two established woods, the East Woods and West Woods, and in Washington Grove Meadow Conservation Park on the east side of town.

Our Outdoor Spaces

Our recreational facilities include tennis courts, children’s playgrounds, a swimming lake, a sports field, and basketball courts. In Summer, Grovers congregate at Maple Lake to picnic or relax under the stately trees, play on the beach, dive from the dock, or fish from the Island. Every snowy day in winter, residents will see cross country skiers gliding past their houses on the trails.
