“A small park that serves so many purposes.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Located on the east side of Groveland Mary Laveroni Park serves as way stop for travelers, as well as a valuable community asset. picnic tables under the shade of big oaks makes for a wonderful lunch stop on your way to Yosemite. The parking lot serves as the flea market during the summer. A small venue stage serving extensive community events.

“Love the flea market”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

I found some treasures and I got to go down memory lane with some of the items I came across. They have those items you can't seem to find, even at a Thrift store.

“Picnic Perfect stop on your way to Yosemite”
Reviewed 8 December 2005

Mary Laveroni Community Park is quite large for the size of town that Groveland is. This park was originally the train turn-around station during the building of the O'Shaunessy Dam and the Hetch Hetchy water project. Groveland at that time was the center of building operations, boasting a population of 10,000! I digress...

The train yard was converted to a park and now has a great play area, jungle gym, horseshoe pit, picnic facilities, bathrooms and parking on the upper level and festival grounds and two stages on the lower level. The park plays host to an annual antique car show in June, 49er festival and Chili cook off in September, Flag ceremonies in November and Saturday Night outdoor movies throughout the summer.

Also in the park sits the Museum-Library building. So if you are headed to Yosemite and the kids are restless, this is a good leg-stretching stop.
