Or make your own fun!

Greenfield is rich with so many things to do during the beautiful Indiana summers. Riley Park Pool and Splash Pad are a great chance to get the little ones cooled off during a hot summer day. Or head to one of the many nature preserves for a hike and the chance to see nature in bloom.  

The James Whitcomb Riley Museum is a historical landmark and a wonderful place to learn about Indiana’s past and culture. You can even take a stroll through the beautiful gardens located on the property or follow a poem on the literary trail. Rent a bike for free from Greenfield’s new Bike Share Program and enjoy a ride down Pennsy Trail, too!  

If getting a taste for local restaurants and shops is more your speed, make sure to check out downtown Greenfield and Main Street! From clothing to antiques to ice cold frozen treats, Greenfield is where it’s at this summer.
