In 1986, the citizens of Grosse Pointe Woods passed a Recreation Bond Proposal that included funds for a Community Center. In 1989, construction started and in January 1991, the Community Center was opened. The Center is located at 20025 Mack Plaza, adjoining City Hall. The Community Center is available for the cultural, educational, recreational and social activities of the residents of Grosse Pointe Woods. Programs and services are for all residents, regardless of varying mental and physical abilities. Please call for assistance in accessing recreational services.
Community Center Services
Three rooms are available for rent by residents, with enough space for an intimate gathering of 24 or less, or a grander party for up to 160 guests. Beautiful landscaping outside the Community Center enhances the sunny atmosphere, with cozy fireplaces adding to the homelike feeling.
A variety of leisure-time activities take place at the Community Center. They are publicized quarterly in the Update which is delivered to all residents during the months of February, May, August and November.
Grosse Pointe Woods offers a variety of programs and services to our Senior Citizens. For more information please visit our Senior Citizens' page.
Grosse Pointe Woods Residents and their guests of all ages are welcome to sign up for our discounted group trips. Trips take place once a month, and are published in the Update. If possible, sign up early to ensure a spot on the trip. Please plan to arrive 10 minutes before the start time of the trip in order to check in with the tour escort inside the Community Center and receive a nametag.
