Morgan's Grove Park
Morgan’s Grove Park is a 25 acre park owned by the Shepherdstown Community Club. The Club is responsible for the capital improvements and many of the operating expenses. The Park is open to all during daylight hours for most of the year.
Located a short distance south of Shepherdstown, the Park is part of the Morgan’s Grove Historic District. Today, the Park is a popular spot for picnics, soccer leagues, and exercise area but the site has always played a role in the activities of Shepherdstown.
The Park includes a children’s playground, a professionally landscaped walking path, soccer fields, a covered pavilion and kitchen, barbeque grills, playground equipment, and picnic tables.
We are most fortunate to have Morgan’s Grove Park available to us but it is expensive to maintain the walking trails and other features that make this place so special in our community. Any donations are gratefully received and put to good use. You may make a donation online – just click the “Make a Donation” button below. We are a 501 c(3) non-profit company so your contribution may be tax- deductible.

Trash Free Park
Morgan’s Grove Park is following the Trash Free Parks method. Trash and recycling cans will be removed from our park.
A trash free program has many benefits, including:
- Fostering a partnership between visitors and the park by encouraging people to take an active role in maintaining a trash-free park.
- Encouraging people to adopt a carry in, carry out Leave No Trace principle.
- Encouraging people to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
- Reducing odors in the picnic area.
- Increasing visitor safety by reducing the number of stinging insects, rodents, and other wildlife in the picnic area.
- Allowing staff time and funds spent on trash collection to be applied to other projects and improvements within the park. (These projects include facility and grounds maintenance, and resource preservation.)
- Reducing the amount of litter in the park.
- Establishing a commitment to park sustainability and responsible park use that will carry on to future generations.
Please be prepared to dispose of your trash and recycling properly by carrying it out of the park when you leave.
The emerald ash borer threatens the magnificent grove of 85 Ash trees in Morgan’s Grove Park, including the third largest green ash tree in West Virginia. It was first discovered in Michigan in 2002.
Local arborists, the Shepherdstown Community Club, and generous donors all worked together to treat and save the trees from the infestation. Trees are an integral part of the park. Their health adds to our health.
