Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers joined city and community leaders on May 6 to officially open Greenwood’s newest public amenity, the Greenwood Fieldhouse. The 65,000-square-foot facility, located on the site of the former Greenwood Middle School, is a modern sports and fitness complex that will expand indoor sport options.
“This project is very dear to my heart because it is a state-of-the-art facility that blends the old with the new,” Myers says. “Our team was very careful in preserving a part of our history in the design. What we have now is a unique facility that delivers on our vision to create the best quality of life and place for our residents and visitors.”
The Greenwood Fieldhouse features an elevated indoor running and walking track, two multipurpose turf fields, and golf simulators, as well as basketball, volleyball and pickleball courts. It also contains rental spaces for parties and events. Elements of the original middle school are visible in the design. The facade of the former school and gymnasium center court are featured in the atrium, and exterior walls of the original building remain. About 40% of the construction is new build.
“To say we are ecstatic for the community to walk through the front doors of the Greenwood Fieldhouse is an understatement,” says Greenwood Parks and Recreation Director Rob Taggart. “We put our heart and soul into this project and cannot wait to see the community enjoying this facility for years to come.”
The facility is open on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends. Annual Greenwood Fieldhouse memberships are available and can be combined with Greenwood Community Center memberships at a discounted rate. Day passes and punch passes are also available, and various event spaces can be reserved. For membership and reservation information, go to greenwood.in.gov/fieldhouse.
The fieldhouse is part of the city’s larger vision for transforming Old Town Greenwood into a vibrant multi-use destination. With a focus on driving community engagement through quality of place and state-of-the-art amenities, the city recently broke ground on a multi-use development, The Madison, located just south of the Greenwood Fieldhouse. Additional Old Town projects include:
- Construction of 300-plus apartments and 60 for-sale units
- A parking garage with 300-plus spaces
- 75,000 square feet of potential retail and office space
- Nine acres of new or upgraded open space
- Nine miles of new or reconstructed streetscape
