Nestled in the northwest corner of Maple Grove is Weaver Lake, a source of enjoyment for residents and visitors alike. The shoreline is partially developed with homes, and the remainder consists of natural areas, and a public park and beach. Access to Weaver Lake is operated by the Maple Grove Park Board and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
This quaint, 149-acre lake has a maximum depth of 57’ with 2.45 miles of shoreline. Typical varieties of fish that call this lake home include black bullhead, yellow bullhead, bluegill, green sunfish, northern pike, and tiger muskellunge. For more information on fishing, head to the Minnesota DNR Fishing Report.
Public access to Weaver Lake is provided by a city-owned boat ramp located on the western shore. Weaver Lake Community Park sits on the southeast shore and offers everything you need for a fun, day-long outing. Amenities include a picnic pavilion area and grills, large viewing deck, four tennis courts, three ballfields, sand volleyball courts and horseshoe pits, upper and lower parking lots and restrooms, a concession stand, and a fishing pier. Groups can make reservations at the picnic pavilion for birthday parties and family reunions.
Each year, Weaver Lake hosts fun seasonal events for residents and visitors. You will find an Easter egg hunt in the spring, boat parades and ice cream socials in the summer, and trick-or-treating in the fall.
The Weaver Lake Conservation Association (WLCA) is committed to maintaining Weaver Lake as a healthy and balanced environment for families and people of all ages to enjoy. The group works to conserve and protect the lake, its adjacent marshlands and park, its fish, wildlife, and the appearance of the lake and surrounding area. The WLCA coordinates and sponsors several community activities around the lake.
