Grosse Pointe Woods

Grosse Pointe Hunt Club

Grosse Pointe Woods is the largest in land area and population of the five Grosse Pointes. There is a total of 3.3 square miles and the population, per the 2010 Census, is 16,135. Grosse Pointe Woods is a “Tree City”, as are the other Grosse Pointes, and takes great pride in its beautification efforts. The commercial district of The Woods provides unique shopping experiences in the one of a kind boutiques along Mack Avenue. The Mack Avenue Association is comprised of a variety of business and professional services. The Grosse Pointe Public Schools are well-represented with Ferry, Monteith, Poupard and Mason Elementary Schools, Parcells Middle School and Grosse Pointe North High School. Grosse Pointe Woods is the only one of the Grosse Pointes that is not located on Lake St. Clair but its residents’ only park, Lakefront Park, is located on the water in neighboring St. Clair Shores. Residents enjoy a large slide that soars above the in-ground pool, large green space and private marina. The Woods also has the two campuses of University-Liggett School, Michigan’s oldest independent school. The private golf club, Lochmoor Club, offers an expansive course with club house and an indoor tennis facility. Also, the Grosse Pointe Hunt Club provides a little bit of “country” in the city with its barns, indoor riding arena and tennis house and outdoor riding areas.
