Mary Laveroni Community Park (with an area of about 2.3 acres), fronts Highway 120 in Groveland. It was built in the 1980’s and originally named Wayside Park. In August 2003, as part of its 50-year anniversary celebration, it was renamed in honor of one of GCSD's first directors, Mary Laveroni. During emergencies, such as wildfires, this park is used as a staging and bivouac area for emergency response crews.
Mary Laveroni Community Park is home to several annual events such as the “Where the Hell is Groveland” Classic Car Show, the Rotary Easter Egg Hunt, Flea Market, Halloween in the Park, and the annual 49er Festival and Chili Cook-Off. In addition to these annual community events, the park is used by individual members of the community for various special events such as weddings, fundraisers, and concerts.
