Greenwood Park is located on the south end of the city in the Quinsigamond Village Neighborhood section. It is bustling with lots of activities during the summer months.

Initial purchases were made in 1905, from Ezra A. Day and William Forsberg. There were subsequent purchases from eight others in 1912 and 1917 making for a total of 14 acres. The women's NCAA sanctioned basketball league is hosted there during the months of June and July. Additionally there is a playground, softball field, spray park, basketball court, nature trail, picnic areas and tennis courts available to the city public.

Splash

Section of the Greenwood Spray Park Equipment

One of Greenwood Park's most prominent aspects is its splash pad or spray park. The splash pad has proven to be a popular park element during the summer season. It is a great way for the kids to have fun and cool off on a hot summer day!
