Grove Park Neighborhood ACTIVITIES       

Get Involved - NOTICES in the Quarterly Newsletters, on the GP Facebook pages and GPN site

There are numerous opportunities to get involved in the life of the neighborhood.
Whether you’re new to Grove Park or have lived here for years, an adult or a child, there is at least one group or one activity perfect for you.

Here is a sampling of the ways you can meet neighbors, volunteer, play, and make a difference in our community. Come Join Us!

For all activities CONTACT Mimi Davis at    to get started.

Volunteer Opportunities

Mentor a child or youth: Studies have proven that children who read proficiently by 3rd grade are better positioned for lifelong success. Grove Park residents support our CMS neighborhood elementary school, Joseph W. Grier Academy and the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club on Milton Road through mentoring, reading buddies, test proctoring and more.

Grove Park Gazette Newsletter Contributors. We’re always looking for good story ideas and writers for our quarterly neighborhood newsletter. Contact us with your story ideas.

Block Captains. Become a block captain and get to know your immediate neighbors better.

Welcome Committee. Ensuring that new residents feel welcome is one of the most important ways that we can build a strong community.

Volunteer for our annual events: Garden Tour, Fourth of July Parade, Winterfest Party, etc.

Quarterly Neighborhood Association Meetings
The Grove Park Neighborhood Association meets quarterly at the Hickory Grove Recreation Center, 6709 Pence Road.
Meet neighbors, stay up-to-date on current issues, CMPD updates, political reps, city-county projects and East Charlotte news.

Coffee & Cops Meetings: Join your neighbors for a casual meeting with our local CMPD officers.
This is an opportunity to talk one-on-one with the CMPD Community Coordinators assigned to our neighborhood.
Meetings occur monthly at one of Grove Park’s local restaurants, except for those months in which a neighborhood meeting is scheduled.

Social Clubs

Garden Club. The Grove Park-Ravenwood Garden Club meets monthly, typically on a Saturday morning.
Annual field trips and the club’s annual holiday brunch are a big hit.
The signature event is the annual Spring Garden Tour. Whether you have a green thumb or not, all are welcome.
Meeting announcements are posted on Grove Park’s Facebook page.

Annual Spring Garden Tour & plant sale
Ten to twenty families in Ravenwood and Grove Park open their yards for tours of their spectacular gardens and homes in early May every year. 
It's a great way to learn innovative and beautiful ways to improve your own yard and gardens.

Inkling Book Club. Join neighbors for a monthly book club meeting and share your love of reading, coffee or vino, along with good conversation.

Spanish Speaking Women’s Group meets monthly to strengthen connections in our community.
Meeting announcements are posted on Grove Park’s Facebook page.

Grove Park Crafters. For those that love crafts, opportunities exist to gather to knit, crochet, paint or anything else you can do safely indoors.
Meeting announcements are posted on the GP Facebook page.
