The Grove is a "green city" , an urban fringe community.

The Grove is ringed by mountains and high hills, from Church St in Grovely around Samford Rd in Keperra around Mt Nebo Rd to Camp Mountain, then the high hills behind Ferny Grove on either side of Samford Rd, and along Caesar Rd.

It matches the area that Radio YYY 87.6 FM broadcasts to.
