A Great Park

Sharon Woods

As the oldest park in our system, Sharon Woods has a rich history of providing great recreational opportunities like fishing, boating, golfing, and hiking.

The Boathouse and Lakeside Lodge will remain closed during the Sharon Lake Improvement/Dredging Project through 2025. 

Sharon Lake and the Shared Use Trail will remain open until the draining & dredging of the lake begins in 2024. 

Please visit the Sharon Lake Improvement project page to learn more. 

Sharon Woods is a popular 723-acre park that features a visitor center with exhibits as well as one of our Nature's Niche gift shops.

The park is a popular spot to exercise outdoors with a 2.6-mile paved multi-purpose trail around the lake, a 1.0-mile fitness trail, and the 0.7-mile Gorge nature trail. 

Reservable areas include the Lakeside Lodge, as well as shelters and picnic areas, with Great Parks Catering available.

Upcoming Events

  • Sharon Lake Improvement

    If you’ve seen a green covering over Sharon Lake, it’s not algae; it’s duckweed, one of the smallest flowering plants in the world. This plant is taking advantage nutrients in the sediment at the bottom of the lake.

    Great Parks is in the process of improving the health of the lake and surrounding habitats. While it is an extensive project, enhancing the lake will improve water quality, preserve local wildlife and offer park guests the best recreation opportunities.
