My family just moved to Greenwood in January. I've found a preschool for my 4 yr. old, discovered Bouncertown, and a few parks, but I'm wondering what are some other fun things to do in Greenwood? I know the Indpls. Children's Museum & the Indpls. Zoo are not far, but are there local activities? Like a community soccer program? Library programs? Or any other suggestions for what a young family might enjoy? Thanks so much!

What can I do next?

Jo Anne Fabrics on US 31 offers a lot of craft classes, cake decorating, sewing. I know you have boys but it could be a great creative outlet for them, and you'll be able to meet other moms too!

Try the YMCA at Stop 11 & Shelby St. in Indpls. for excellent sport programs. (There is also a YMCA in Nashville in Brown County that may be useful when on a family outing.) The Marion County libraries have summer reading programs and activities, see if the Greenwood library also has one. Make friends with a few mothers at Preschool - invite them over for a "preschool session chat" that may lead to a regular rotating get together and play dates for the children. The Indianapolis Muesum of Art (38th & Northwestern Ave.) is free and has children's programing. Welcome to Indiana.

I would check the greenwood library website for different activities. the greenwood library is nice and offer activities for both ages (Plus it would be cheap). I haven't been to bouncertown is that entertaining for a 15month old you think? Also the YMCA near southport is nice and has lots of options.

The Greenwood Public Library offers alot of children's activities year-round. So does the Johnson County Library - so depending on which part of Greenwood you live in, you should be able to find something there. You can also check out the Greenwood Community Center - they offer many activities/classes also.

Congratulations on the new family member. I am a nurse at Community South and we offer a one evening sibling class for big brothers. Your boys are the perfect age. Call ###-###-#### for a tour, more info.

There is a church in center grove (that's not too far from you) Emmanuel Church on Stones Crossing and they have a sports program there called Upward that my son participated in for about 5 years. Also the greenwood library has some preschool activities such as story time and crafts. Garfield Park and conservatory also has some programs for young children.

Hi B.,
Try the Johnson County public library website. www.jcplin.org
It has a calendar of events each month for 3 different library branches in your area. The city of Greenwood has lots of activities on their website to. www.greenwood.in.gov. There are also quite a few churches in Greenwood that have lots of things to do throughout the week and on the weekends. Hope this helps. D.

I really enjoyed reading this thread, as eventhough I'm not super new to Indianapolis (we live on the south east side of Indy, and I'm in Greenwood a ton), I'm often at a loss of what to do! My son is 13 months old, and I'm a SAHM.
