About Greenwood Park Bells Lake Community Club

Bells Lake is a 33 acre man-made lake and has a very long and interesting history. No one knows exactly when Bell’s Lake was created. The original owners and inhabitants were the Leni Lenape Indian tribe. The Leni Lenape tribe sold the land in the 1600’s to the English for household articles and trinkets. The property passed hands many times and was known by different names through the years. The property was usually identified by the current owner’s name and has been known as ‘Arrell Tract,’ ‘Williams Mill Pond,’ ‘Prosser’s Mill,’ and ‘Mill Pond.

Learn to Swim

The Greenwood Park Swim Club has developed swimming lessons for kids and adults that allow everyone the opportunity to learn in a safe environment, at their own pace. It’s an inviting and safe place where kids and adults overcome their fears, learn to swim, respect the water and have lots of fun while doing it. Classes are taught by certified, knowledgeable and caring instructors who can help swimmers at every level feel comfortable in the water and progress to the next level. Group and Private swim lessons are available for ages 3+.

Our Club Is Our Family

As of today, much of the wooded land surrounding the lake is still in its natural state. There are still remnants of the gristmill left behind. The boathouse was the last building of the past remaining on the property. Sailboat regattas were held on the lake every year during the 1970s. Many neighbors and club members owned sailboats and it was a beautiful sight to see the colorful sails in the summer breeze. Before the pool was put in, there were no fences and neighbors mowed right down to the lake to do their part in the upkeep of the property. Evening dances and parties were held at the clubhouse and were enjoyed by all.
