Since 1959, members of Willow Grove Swim Club have enjoyed relief from the summer heat by dipping in the cool waters…More of "The Grove," or by catching a breeze in the shade provided by the abundance of trees in the six-acre enclave. Nestled in the woods near the Maple Hill section of Scotch Plains, Willow Grove continues to delight both young and old with a combination of recreation, relaxation and socializing.
The club was formed as a local cooperative by interested residents of the Maple Hill Farm development back in the late 1950s. Today, its membership is comprised of families from Scotch Plains, Fanwood, Westfield, Plainfield and New Providence.
For the cost of a one week shore rental, Willow Grove Swim Club not only offers a beautiful pool, but pizza days, ice cream float days, swim lessons for children of all ages, teen socials, adult socials and cocktail hours, a 4th of July picnic, an end of summer picnic, and a ladies luncheon.
