Amenities

In addition to the 64 acres of preserved forest, nearly 5,000 reforested trees, 85 acres of open space and 68 acres of Madera Creek, The Groves offers an endless supply of imaginative amenities just outside your door. 
 
THE CIRCUIT & MT GROVES
COMING SOON!
The Circuit park is the newest park coming to The Groves and is the start of your fitness journey.  This park will feature various fitness stations such as stretching, balance beam, crunches, bars, pull-ups and high bars among others.  Central to The Circuit will be a yoga lawn with a wood deck for an instructor to get our residents in their best state of mind through yoga lessons.  Interactive signage will be placed throughout teaching you different yoga poses and ways to use each fitness station.
 
The Groves is also excited to feature Mt. Groves and the upcoming Adventure Fitness Obstacle Course, which is on the opposite end of your fitness journey. The custom-built obstacle course from Adventure Fitness will include a ROTC/Seal training obstacle such as the Double-Sided Traverse Wall, High Monkey Bars, Rope Climb and Confidence Climb. Mt. Groves sits nearly 20 feet above ground level at a 10:1 slope allowing for a 200-foot incline to the peak and will feature hill incline exercises and a hilltop marker as part of this fitness circuit.  Mt. Groves will also feature a timed element that will really get your sense of competition in gear.
THE NEST
The Nest is located inside the section by Albright Grove and Timber Forest Drive. Created with an element that perches atop a mounded hill for children to explore, The Nest is accessed by climbing up the hill or the cargo net. Inside the nest are life-sized bird eggs to sit, stand or play on. The idea is to spark children’s imagination of exploring what it would be like to be a bird. 
 
With an open lawn area with picnic tables and Adirondack chairs, there are plenty of trails to explore and discover nature. Speaking of nature, small multi-Colored Stone Totems will be added in part of our signature Art in Nature elements.
