Greenwood offers a lower cost of living compared to similar cities surrounding Indianapolis and has become a very attractive home for many families. Our community offers three high-performing school districts – Greenwood Community, Center Grove, and Clark-Pleasant – all possessing a rich academic history. Greenwood families and young professionals enjoy a variety of dining options, including a number of local downtown favorites, all the 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 short 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.
