The Black Lake
A large body of water located to the south of the castle and about half a mile in diameter, the Black Lake is a good place for students to relax. A number of things live in the lake, including merpeople, grindylows and of course, the Giant Squid. Students are permitted to sit by the shores, however swimming is strictly forbidden. In the colder months, students can skate across the ice.

Courtyard
The courtyard is a cobblestone place branching off of the Hogwarts castle. A waterfall stands in the middle, surrounded by four marble benches. In the summer, most students will come here to finish their homework or essays, or just to enjoy the weather. In the winter, it is covered with a light blanket of snow.

The Forbidden Forest
Just like its name, the Forbidden Forest is strictly off limits to students. Well, students who listen to the rules anyway. The forest is dark and dreary, the tops of the trees so dense that no light can get through. Among the creatures inside the forest, there are centaurs, unicorns, trolls and thestrals. There are also a lot of spiders in there, wanting to avenge the death of their leader, Aragog. They're big spiders too!

Hagrid's Hut
The home of one Rubeus Hagrid. This is out of bounds for students. It was destroyed in 1997, immediately after Dumbledore's death, but was rebuilt after Voldemort's demise.

Lawns and Gardens
Almost like a botanical gardens of sorts, there are many different attributes to the lawns and gardens of Hogwarts. There is a small pond in the middle with carp and goldfish that one could feed if they were looking for something to do.

Owlery
When mail isn't being dropped onto unsuspecting students in the Great Hall, or sending letters to home, owls reside in the tall tower. Rafters litter the walls, whilst straw and stray feathers cover the floor, along with the less appealing things like skeletons of small rodents and faeces from the owls. Students can come here to send letters off or to just visit their owls.

Quidditch Pitch
With three hoops at each end, all suspended off of the ground at different heights and stands surrounding the field, the Quidditch Pitch is clearly everyone's favourite place come Quidditch season. This area is also used by the members of the House teams during Quidditch Practices. This is also where practical flying lessons are taught.

Sundial Garden
One of the most oldest part of the grounds of Hogwarts, the Sundial Garden is a circle of giant stones that form a sundial. The Stone Circle allows the activity of owl racing between students, but don't let a Professor catch you, otherwise you might be looking at cleaning the Owlery floor!

The Whomping Willow
The Whomping Willow, located on the grounds of Hogwarts, was planted in 1971 to disguise the opening of a secret passage leading from the Hogwarts grounds to the Shrieking Shack, a building located in the village of Hogsmeade. A violent plant, it has been known to attack anyone who disturbs its branches.

The Wooden Bridge
Long before the Battle of Hogwarts, there stood a bridge. At first, appearing derelict, the bridge was constructed of wooden beams which extended to the bottom of the ravine it was built over. The bridge starts at one end of the Clock Tower Courtyard and finishes just outside of Sundial Garden. The bridge was destroyed during the Battle of Hogwarts under the orders of Minerva McGonagall, but was rebuilt in 1999.

The grounds of Hogwarts are quite extensive and stretch as far as the eye can see. A dirt path with random patches of stone steps reaches from the entrance gates to the front doors, weaving through the emerald green hills. The Black Lake stretches around the south side of the school, leading up into the mountains. Students can often be found relaxing, if the weather permits.
