About Venue

      • It is about a 15 minute drive from the Shady Grove Metro, so in addition to organizing carpooling, we could pick up interested commuters at the metro.
      • Two parking areas are available – one across the street at the boat house, another further along Needwood Lake Circle. Paddleboats, kayaks, row boats, and canoes are available to rent from the boat house. Fishing is permitted, but a Maryland State Fishing License is needed for those over 16. There is also a small playground and permanent restroom facilities located at Picnic Area 1. The Go Ape! zipline is available near Picnic Area 2.
