City Celebrates Opening of Greenwood Fieldhouse
Completion of multi-use sports complex delivers on mayor’s vision for Old Town
GREENWOOD, Ind. – Today, Mayor Mark W. Myers joined city and community leaders 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 said. “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.”
“To say we are ecstatic for the community to walk through the front doors of the Greenwood Fieldhouse is an understatement,” said Greenwood Parks & 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 Greenwood Fieldhouse features an elevated indoor running and walking track, two multi-purpose turf fields, golf simulators and 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 façade 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.
The facility is open 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+ apartments and 60 for sale units
- Parking garage with 300+ spaces
- 75,000 square feet of potential retail/office space
- 9 acres of new or upgraded open space
- 9 miles of new or reconstructed streetscape
