On May 18th & 19th 2013 we staged a special community weekend to celebrate the Centenary of Grovelands Park. The event was a huge success, getting nominated for a national award. Almost 20,000 visitors enjoyed the music, food, exhibitions and parade.

The Birthday Party is over. The huge stages, marquees, equipment, stalls and vehicles have all been cleared and our treasured park was restored to the natural state we all love, like it had all been a dream. We are left with our memories of those special days but what memories.
