Woodlawn Lake Park

Woodlawn Lake Park is a 62-acre recreational area located northwest of downtown which features an artificial lake about 30 acres in size. The lake is available for fishing (not that we’re recommending you eat your catch), while non motorized boating and watercraft are allowed by special request. Home to the Woodlawn Lake Sailing Club (small craft and radio-controlled sailboats; woodlawnsailingclub.org), the park is also popular with walkers and joggers, including students from nearby St. Mary’s University, and offers a fishing pond, gym, swimming pool, softball field, basketball and tennis courts and two playgrounds.
