The Grounds Committee is made up of members of the community that focus on the common area landscaping, particularly the streetscapes and most amenities, excluding the pool. The Committee makes recommendations for improvements and upgrades to the landscaping to the Board of Directors.

The Committee acts as the liaison to the Board with the Association's landscape contractor and make recommendations for adjustments to the work of the landscaper. The Committee will also assist the Board with the selection of a landscape contractor when the contract renewal occurs.

The Committee will make recommendations to the Board regarding an appropriate annual budget for landscaping and a budget for implementing its grounds improvement recommendations.

All homeowners are invited to participate. We meet twice a month. If you are interested, please join us on the 2nd Wednesday and the 4th Thursday at 6:30PM in the Clubhouse.

Reduce neighborhood traffic speeds: After a concern was raised about the excessive speeding throughout the community, the city of Durham was contacted to do a speed study on Guy Walker Way.  The results of the study are posted on the bottom of this page. Their conclusion was that 85% speeds are at 29 mph and that this does not rise to a level where police would dispatch targeted enforcement. As a reminder when driving throughout the community, please slow down and stick to the speed limit. 

Tennis Courts:

After several years of planning by the Board of Directors, office management team, and Grounds Committee along with invaluable input from the Grove Park homeowners we are very excited to announce that the tennis courts and basketball court will be available tomorrow, September 9th at noon. We would also like to thank all of the volunteers from the Grounds Committee for their input and timeless effort in helping us bring this project to completion. 

There are a set of rules posted on both the tennis and basketball courts that must be adhered to. Your access card must be used to gain entry into the courts.  A special thanks to the Grove Park homeowners for your patience, understanding, and support. Enjoy your new courts.

Construction Schedule:

September 6th- The final details are being completed and the courts are scheduled to open 9/9 in conjunction with the pool party.

August 30th- The contractor is completing the final punch list items for the tennis/basketball courts. These items are expected to be completed with in the next two weeks. Once these items are complete, we will send out an email to the community before it opens.

August 8th- Basketball backboards were installed

August 1st- August 17th- painting the surface of the courts & installation of the access card readers

This schedule is weather permitting.

Walking Trail: Update 10/9/17- The paving of the walking trail is set to begin around November 6, 2017. The work is expected to take up to a week. We will post a schedule and time frame once we get closer to the date and receive more information.

 Due to the subsurface issues found at the tennis court we decided to investigate the subsurface of the walking trail prior to paving. That work is in process now and the plan is to proceed with paving once weather permits.
