GREENWOOD — The City of Greenwood and Mayor Mark Myers unveiled for the first time on Thursday the interior designs for the new downtown fieldhouse and new destination park on the city's southeast side.

The park will be situated on 40 acres near the I-65 and Worthsville Road interchange. The park will serve local and traveling sports teams with several ball diamonds, a multi-use playing field, splash pad, and inclusive playground equipment.

Designs unveiled for the new downtown fieldhouse showed the year-round recreational and fitness center would also serve as a destination for youth sports teams. The fieldhouse will be able to host sports, including volleyball, futsal, badminton, soccer, baseball, basketball, and pickleball.

"The interior layout provides for new and enhanced recreational amenities while also maintaining the ability to host public and private conventions," Mayor Myers said.

Currently, the city is preparing final construction documents and anticipates issuing a public bid soon.

City officials released a master development plan for the property late last year and are currently soliciting proposals.
