Amenities at the Groves
One of the many unique aspects of The Groves is our Splash Pad, where a kid can be a kid no matter their age. Our Lifestyle Center Park showcases a fire pit, Great Lawn, walking trails, yard games, and a scenic view of our woods. The Woodland Playground, which incorporates wood we have recycled from our trees, lets kids climb, swing, and play to their heart’s content. Inside the Lifestyle Center you will find a fitness center, shuffleboard table, and free Wi-Fi and lounging areas.
In 2020, The Groves unveiled a park designed exclusively for its younger residents: Mini Groves. Mini Groves is a scaled-down park version of the community, featuring key elements for children to explore, including a toddler adventure playground, a miniature fire tower with roller slide designed to match the entry to the community, creek fall surface areas with animals embedded within to mimic Madera Creek, an open lawn area with Adirondack chairs and Hammocks to mirror The Hearth Amenity Center, a trike track representing Madera Run Parkway, a Matchbox car track to race mini-cars, chalkboard cylinders, and a small fish camp akin to the community’s life-sized Fish Camp.
For outdoor fun, head to Fish Camp, our stocked pond for catch and release fishing, a dock and an entertainment space. Residents can enjoy lounging on hammocks and exploring our labyrinth, walking trails and stepping stones around Madera Creek. The Groves is also excited to introduce new amenities as part of the community’s 10 miles of trails. Harmony Station contains musical elements such as wind chimes, chimes in the shape of a “chime-asaurus,” Grandioso Chimes, and whale drums and is located along the paths to provide peaceful musical accompaniment and inspiration to walkers. Discovery Square & Exploration Trails offer innovative park elements, including mirrored stumps, a dragon swing, picnic tables in the trees, a group spinner, art within nature pieces, woodland animal statues, bird hotels, bat boxes, squirrel bridges and more. Together, these amenities give residents and families the opportunity to express their imaginations and creativity amongst the outdoors.
