Greensburg Community School Corporation gifts land to City of Greensburg
City gifted more than nine acres to complete Pirate Park
Greensburg, IN - During the August 25 Greensburg Community School Corporation School Board meeting, board members officially gifted the City of Greensburg with more than nine acres of land to complete Pirate Park, a new green space near Greensburg Community High School.
Pirate Park is a project that was part of Greensburg's 2016 Stellar Community presentation to the State of Indiana. The City of Greensburg has been working on Pirate Park since 2016 and is now close to completion. It is expected to be operational by the spring season of 2021. The park will not only be a green space in our community, but will also serve as a youth soccer and travel tournament complex. Current plans call for various sized soccer fields, a concession stand, storage area, and public restrooms. Upon completion, it will serve as a full-service soccer space for Southeastern Indiana.
"In a community like Greensburg, it is important to have spaces that can serve many different functions," said Greensburg Mayor Joshua Marsh. "Pirate Park is more than just a soccer complex- it is a space in our community that can be used in tandem with the spaces and buildings around it, such as the new Amphitheater at Rebekah Park, the coming Inclusion Park, and the schools. This project is now four years in the making, and I am pleased to see it approaching the final stages. I would like to thank Greensburg Community Schools for continuing to be a great community partner and help improve the quality of life in our city."
