Greenwood announces grand re-opening for reimagined, modernized Community Center
Renovated facility to reopen Jan. 14 with ribbon cutting, community celebration

GREENWOOD, Ind. – One of Greenwood’s most popular year-round destinations will soon be welcoming visitors once again as city officials today announced Jan. 14 as the grand re-opening for the Greenwood Community Center.

The facility, which received a top-to-bottom makeover, has been closed for the past several months while undergoing the more than $2 million renovation, its first since opening in 1992. The Community Center will now feature two innovative and distinctive zones:

  • “Kid City,” a two-story, STEAM-focused play and activity zone for children. The space includes a Luckey Climber, a wall-sized Lite Brite and special access to a new musically themed outdoor play area.

  • “The Gym,” an expansion of the adult workout area featuring the latest in cardio and weightlifting equipment in a modernized setting.

The facility also includes separate areas for a variety of adult fitness classes and three activities rooms that can be rented for events, birthday parties and business meetings.

Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers says the new Community Center is another example of driving growth and economic development by focusing on quality of place initiatives.

“To be a successful city, a city appealing to both current and potential new residents and businesses, Greenwood must offer desirable amenities and a high quality of life,” said Myers. “Our new Community Center will be the premier south side destination for both families and active, health-minded individuals. The transformation is incredible.”

Myers says the facility will also permanently extend hours of operation, allowing patrons more opportunities to schedule exercise and recreation around increasingly busy schedules.

“This is truly a game changer for our community,” said Parks & Recreation Director Rob Taggart. “The facility has been completely reimagined, providing modern exercise equipment and fitness class spaces, a year-round indoor play zone for children, and activity centers that incorporate educational themes such as STEM, art and music. We can’t wait to see the reaction from visitors.”

More information, including hours, membership and fitness class schedules, can be found on the Community Center website.
