Civic Association

Our community is truly unique in northern Lake County. The Grandwood Park Civic Association’s purpose is to enhance and support the entire community. The Civic Association works in conjunction with the Grandwood Park Park District to provide community activities such as Oktoberfest, Spaghetti Dinners, Fish Fry’s, Children’s parties, and Political Forums just to name a few. These activities and events not only support the community, but bring its residents together.

The Grandwood Park Civic Association, established in 1962, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The GPCA Board consists of five (5) unpaid volunteers, each serving a 2-year term. Monthly meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the Grandwood Park Park District Community Center conference room.

You may contact the Civic Association by telephone at (224) 469-9933, by email at, or by mail:
