Grant Beach residents believe that neighbors should actively participate as a democracy and a community. Grant Beach neighbors are passionate about maintaining and improving a sense of community, motivating the City of Springfield and sustaining neighborhood watch programs. The Grant Beach Neighborhood Association (GBNA) benefits the area within the boundaries of Boonville (east), Kansas Expressway (west), the railroad tracks just north of Commercial street, and Chestnut Expressway (south).
Included in the neighborhood is the Hovey House. The Hovey House is a collaboration between the Springfield-Greene County Park Board and the Grant Beach Neighborhood Association and is the current headquarters for the Grant Beach Neighborhood Association. The Grant Beach Community Garden is located on the same grounds as Hovey House which is across from the Grant Beach Park and Public Pool.
