Life By the River
The Grove Community News
The summer that was Even though the sun has set on another Australian summer, things are still heating up at The Grove. With plenty of activity happening over the Christmas break and into the new year, 2021 is already off to a cracking start. Let’s take a look back at some of the summer fun that was had and what’s ahead in the coming months. We rang in the new year by greeting over 1,200 new residents to The Grove. It’s very exciting to see our community grow and to welcome more families to their homes by the river. Not only did we welcome new families, but the highly anticipated footbridge over Davis Creek is also a much-welcomed sight for all residents. Pedestrian access from The Grove into the wider Tarneit community is now a whole lot easier, thanks to our newly completed walkway. Community improvements don’t stop there. Construction of the Community Activity Centre, delivered by Wyndham City Council, is well and truly underway. Plus, construction of the stage 32 park is progressing well with completion due in the coming months. All these stories and more inside this summer wrap up issue. As always, if there is anything you’d like to see covered in the future or have an idea for a story please get in touch. Otherwise, grab a drink, a comfy spot on the couch and catch up on the latest with The Grove Community News. Enjoy.

Bush Bus is a fantastic way for young kids to learn all about indigenous flora and fauna in the local area while socialising with other kids in the neighbourhood. Mud, fun and learning, what’s not to love? All aboard the Bush Bus! Get amongst the fun by booking your spot via the link below. Click here to book your spot.

What’s on Wynner Wynner Getting around the west is about to become a lot easier with the addition of WYNBUS at The Grove. The Grove is partnering with Wyndham Vale’s own WYNBUS mobile ride share system. WYNBUS will provide residents of our community an alternate solution to public transport. The on-demand shuttle service will be trialled in the greater Tarneit area to bring more accessible transport options to the people of Wyndham Vale. In the meantime, to help us learn more about how to best offer transport solutions to our community, we would love to get your feedback on how useful WYNBUS would be to your neighbourhood. Click here to fill out a quick survey and share your thoughts to help plan the WYNBUS service for The Grove.

Celebrating International Women’s Day We would like to acknowledge all the amazing women throughout The Grove community and right across the world. At The Grove, we celebrated International Women’s Day by taking part in a high tea event for the community organised by the Little Growling Café. We’d like to thank special guests, Gabrielle Williams, Hon. Minister for Women and Sarah Connolly, Member for Tarneit, for attending. It was particularly inspiring to applaud the tremendous efforts of women in leadership positions and work towards equal opportunity for all girls and women.
Delicious. What a treat it was to enjoy this tasty morning tea.

Updates Davis Road Footbridge
Hogans Road Bridge
The recent opening of the Davis Road Footbridge has made pedestrian access from The Grove into the wider Tarneit Community a lot easier.
Please be aware that Hogans Road will be closed for a period of time.
The footbridge crosses Davis Creek at Cuttlefish Circuit and connects with the shared path adjacent to Wootten Road Reserve. We have always been committed to building a community that is pedestrian friendly. The addition of this footbridge means residents can now easily access the two neighbouring sporting ovals and tennis courts without needing to go via Hogans Road. Go for a walk or ride and check it out for yourself.
As we commence work on the Hogans Road Bridge, traffic will be diverted to Bethany Road during this time. We thank everyone for their patience while works are underway. Once completed, residents will no longer have to compete with traffic and crossing Hogans Road will be much easier for all.
The Davis Road footbridge is now connecting residents to Tarneit.
Updates Stages 60, 61 and 62 updates Our community is steadily growing. Construction of stages 60 and 61 is progressing well and on track for settlements in the third quarter of this year, while stage 62 is on track for settlements in the fourth quarter of this year. To all our future residents we can’t wait to welcome you to life by the river. Things are happening at the Grove. We can’t wait to welcome our new residents.
Stage 32 and 37B parks complete soon It’s not just homes that are under construction but new exciting parks too.
Our new parks will be a hit with residents both young and old.
Construction of the stage 32 park is well and truly underway with completion anticipated in the coming months. Additionally, stage 37B park is under construction with plans to be completed by the third quarter of this year. These two parks are designed to inspire adventure, exploration and discovery. It’ll be a place where children can let their imagination go wild. So, stay tuned because the opening of these parks are right around the corner.
Wetlands and waterways delivering soon It’s no secret that we love nature and that’s why we’re thrilled to have our wetlands and waterways underway. The wetlands and associated waterways will feature 75,000 plants and breathtaking landscape design to transform a section of our community into stunning waterways, picnic spaces, walking trails and bike paths. The wetlands space will be delivered in stages, with the entire system expected to be completed by 2022. Exciting things to come for your life by the river.
