Woolwich Reservoir is one of seven owned by the GRCA to manage floods and maintain flows in the Grand River system.

The entrance is at 7224 Reids Wood Drive, northwest of Elmira.

The Elmira Lions Club built and maintains the Lions Trail, a 7-kilometre hiking and cycling trail that goes around the reservoir and through nearby wooded areas. Non-motorized boating and fishing are allowed in the reservoir.
