GREENWOOD, Ind.–Plans were released Thursday for a new destination park on the southeast side of Greenwood that will cater to local and traveling sports teams. 

The park will eventually be built on the northwest corner of I-65 and Worthsville Road. It will cover 40 acres and have baseball fields, multi-purpose fields, playgrounds, and a splash pad among other things. 

“In Greenwood, we believe in hard work, honesty and never giving up,” said Mayor Mark Myers. “We value authenticity, fiscal responsibility and providing the best quality of life for our families and for generations to follow. Our unified will to improve this community serves as a source of pride and the foundation for Greenwood’s continued progress.” 

That project is still in the conceptual phase, so an estimated cost and date of completion are not known at this point. 

Myers also discussed the interior designs for the city’s new downtown fieldhouse, which will serve as the anchor for the redevelopment of the former Greenwood Middle School. 

People who live in and around Greenwood will be able to use it, but it will also cater to sports teams. It will be equipped to host several sports, such as volleyball, basketball, baseball, and soccer, among others. 

The new facility will also feature an elevated, three-lane track and will also have Greenwood’s first indoor turf field, complete with an electronic scoreboard and seating for spectators.

“The interior layout provides for new and enhanced recreational amenities while also maintaining the ability to host public and private conventions,” said Myers.

The city first acquired the Greenwood Middle School property in 2017. Demolition of the majority of the school started last March.
