It’s one of the first things you’ll notice as you make your way through Greenwood: families.
You’ll see parents standing in line with their children at Mrs. Curl Ice Cream Shop, a family of four riding bikes along the city’s trail system, or a mom and dad parking a van full of children at Freedom Springs Aquatic Center. Families are everywhere in Greenwood, and it shouldn’t come as a surprise. We offer a lower cost of living compared to similar cities surrounding Indianapolis. Add to that a much shorter commute to downtown Indy, and you can see why so many families choose Greenwood.
Our community offers three high-performing school districts – Greenwood Community, Center Grove and Clark-Pleasant – all possessing a rich academic history. When it’s time for your children to decide on college, they can stay close to home and attend some of the best universities in the country. IUPUI and Butler University are just a short, 30-minute drive, while Indiana University is less than an hour south and Purdue University only an hour and a half to the northwest.
Greenwood families and young professionals enjoy a variety of dining options, including a number of local downtown favorites, all your nationally known staples, and several homegrown breweries and coffee shops.
And in addition to all of the wonderful things Greenwood can offer, the city is still just a 15-minute drive to Indianapolis, where families can go for a stroll on the canal, catch an NBA or NFL game, visit the Indianapolis Zoo, or catch a concert on the lawn at White River State Park.
