City of Grover Beach logoThe City of Grover Beach Parks and Recreation Department is launching a spring and summer series of community park picnic events starting on Friday, April 15 from 4:30 – 6:30 PM at Ramona Garden Park.

“Now that we are fully transitioning back to in-person events within our community, we are excited to offer fun opportunities to bring our residents and City staff together,” stated Grover Beach Mayor Jeff Lee. “We are looking forward to seeing our community enjoy each other’s company at our parks during the picnics this season.”

In addition to conversing with fellow neighbors and local businesses at the April 15 picnic event, community members will be able to enjoy:

• Opportunities to interface with City Council Members and staff
• Beverages and snacks
• A bounce house
• Lawn games

The City is planning to host additional picnics later this year, with the next events planned for May and June. Businesses wanting to sell food or merchandise can contact the Parks and Recreation Department to request a vendor application and obtain a Grover Beach Business Tax Certificate at Clubs and interest groups are also welcomed to share information regarding their organization.

“The Parks and Recreation Department has been working hard to make up for lost community interaction time the pandemic brought over the last two years. These picnic events are a great way to bring residents and local businesses together in a centralized location for interpersonal engagement,” said Grover Beach Parks and Recreation Director Kathy Petker.

The Grover Beach community can find out more information about the events by following the City on FacebookInstagramTwitter and Nextdoor.
