It's not surprising to hear so many people talking about Greenwood, the “City of Pride and Progress.” Like our metropolitan neighbor to the north, we’re growing – but without the growing pains. Here, commutes and traffic are a little easier. We focus on schools, family and fun. People love Greenwood for our positive, welcoming, authentic nature. We’re a safe, accessible, tight-knit community with friendly residents and a can-do attitude. It’ll cost you less to live here, and we’re very proud of that.
Greenwood is ideally located, sharing a border with Indianapolis’ south side, so there is always something to do. Minutes away, we have the Colts, Pacers, NCAA championships, a great symphony and cultural attractions -- all with a warm, welcoming community to call home. We have top-rated schools, with state-ranked programs from football to robotics to marching band. Our parks system is absolutely terrific, with recreational facilities from Kid City, our STEM-tailored, year-round indoor play zone for children, to Freedom Springs Aquatic Center, to miles and miles of trails.
Greenwood’s economy is strong and growing steadily, providing an ideal climate for business growth and development. We’re proud to have a skilled workforce and thriving businesses in advanced manufacturing, consulting, logistics and service industries. We celebrate a diverse community of locally owned businesses as well, including several fun restaurants and a legendary ice cream shop. And you can’t forget about the Greenwood Park Mall, a major destination for shoppers with more than 150 stores and restaurants.
Pride and Progress. There’s a lot to be proud of here. A lot of progress has been made, and there’s more to be done. Come see why so many people choose Greenwood as their community; an authentic community, a safe community, a community rooted in the past but looking to our future.
