Greenwood Fieldhouse expands program and wellness options this winter

The city of Greenwood has announced the expansion of programming at the city’s newest public amenity, the Greenwood Fieldhouse. The increase in activities comes as Central Indiana prepares for winter weather.

“Winter temperatures often steer folks away from getting outside for their physical activity,” said Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers. “The fieldhouse will offer expanded and new activities for our residents of all ages. We will have everything from fencing and lacrosse to soccer, pickleball and T-ball. I am excited to see how much the public will enjoy the fieldhouse during its first winter!”

The 65,000-square-foot fieldhouse, completed in spring 2022, offers a variety of indoor recreation spaces, including two multi-purpose turf fields, the city’s first indoor walking track and golf simulators, plus basketball, volleyball and pickleball courts.

The fieldhouse will host a handful of new events, while moving some programming into the fieldhouse that was previously conducted elsewhere due to space constraints at the Greenwood Community Center.

The fieldhouse will also provide space for new activities, including Tots on the Turf, a dedicated time for toddlers to safely explore various sports on the turf during regular school hours.

In addition to new and expanded programming, the fieldhouse will offer leisure opportunities previously not available in Greenwood, including access to cardio and fitness equipment along an elevated running and walking track.

Soccer, pickleball, basketball, and volleyball will all see an increase in open gym times, and the golf simulator will offer daily rental times. Baseball enthusiasts can enjoy open batting cage rentals, available three evenings and one morning per week.
