Letter: Pool at County Line Road wouldn’t serve Greenwood

Russ Stafford


To the editor:

What sense does it make to move the pool to the very fringe of Greenwood? Moving it to Interstate 65 and County Line Road would better serve the residents of Franklin Township in Marion County than most Greenwood residents. In fact, that location would better serve Marion County residents instead of any of the Johnson County residents it is intended for.

At one time there was talk of the YMCA building an adjoining facility in Freedom Park, and they would manage the water park. Was not the intention of this location to serve the Greenwood/Center Grove area families to relieve the current Baxter Y? If the water park is built on the far fringes of the east side of the county, would the YMCA find value in building there?

Now it might be more convenient to build on the County Line exit for NON-Greenwood/Center Grove area residents. However, with the new Worthsville Road exit soon to be constructed, Freedom Park is very close to this new east/west corridor.
