The Grove Community Learning Centre is a welcoming, attractive venue for a wide variety of learning and social activities. Like the Library, it is jointly owned by the Town of Mosman Park, The Town of Cottesloe and the Shire of Peppermint Grove.

Hiring the Centre

The Grove Community Centre is available for hire 7 days a week between the hours of 8.00am – 10.30pm depending on availability and for approved purposes. However, several community groups use the Centre regularly on weekdays, so it is more likely to be available in the evenings, on weekends, or during school holidays. Hiring can be short term or long term (subject to negotiation).
