GREENWOOD — Plans are moving forward to revitalize downtown Greenwood with a fun play area.
On Tuesday the city's Redevelopment Commission voted to approve a $4.9 million construction contract for Old City Park. It is located in the heart of downtown, known locally as Old Town.
The park's transformation will include a 20-foot cube tower as the centerpiece. According to the City of Greenwood, this is the first of its kind in Indiana and one of three in the country. Other features include an 18-foot wide promenade adjacent to Pleasant Creek, a climbing wall and net, extensive open space for developmental play, a new pedestrian bridge, porch swings, bocce ball courts and more.
Construction will begin this spring, and estimated completion is sometime in 2020.
