Fireman’s Grove

Fireman’s Grove is located on Main Street in Ballston Lake. It’s across the street from the entrance to the bike path. The grove is a nicely shaded area that’s always ten degrees cooler than surrounding areas in the summer. It features a large parking area, a large pavilion with picnic tables, restrooms and a kitchen with a large propane grill. Most residents of the area have attended an event at the grove. The land was purchased by the Fire Company several decades ago as a location to hold their annual community clambakes.  The clam bakes evolved into an annual Field Days with rides, games of chance and lots of good food. In addition the fire company catered picnics and clam bakes at the Grove and now rents it out for company picnics, weddings, and family parties.  If you’re looking for a location to host a large out-door event this is the place for you!


We can easily accommodate several hundred people in a comfortable, relaxing setting and our spacious kitchen makes feeding the crowd quite easy. We offer volleyball and horseshoes or bring your own games and set up on our large field. The pavilion has lights, and plenty of power for a PA system, or a band.
