About Us

Grove Park was well known for its neighborhood clubs as they were called named after the streets who hosted them, like Fortified Hills and South Evelyn community club to name a few. They hosted and served as a resource and gathering place for the neighbors, hosting meetings and block parties in the unique median park throughout the neighborhood. 

The Grove Park Neighborhood Association was re-established in 2015 to represent our community residents in bringing a unified voice to the issues affecting our community. We do this by creating forums in which we engage with businesses, community leaders, and elected officials.
