The Greenwood Public Library is also located right next to Old City Park. Here you can check out their market play space, explore their spaces and activities, and more! If you need an indoor activity, you can check out if Kid City at the community center is open for play. Build, climb, play pretend, and more in this space.

If you hang out on Market Plaza, you can also stop at City Center park for another place to play or grab a coffee at Coffeehouse Five.
