Calbert Way Park serves as the trailhead for the Greencastle-to-Fillmore leg of the People Pathways/Vandalia Trail, which heads eastward from Greencastle into Hendricks County. Located east of Greencastle, across from WalMart and north of State Road 240, the Park was donated to the city by People Pathways once the trailhead was created in 2004. It offers a gazebo picnic shelter, benches and greenspace. Primarily, it is a parking/meeting area offering direct access to People Pathways.
On Greencastle’s south side, Maple Berry Park, with a concrete basketball court, picnic tables, and benches, was created in 2003 at the intersections of Maple, Broadway, Berry, and Sycamore streets, immediately west of Micaela Cancilla Park, named for the life-long Greencastle resident who greeted patrons in her family’s restaurant, Mama Nunz. Micaela Cancilla Park includes a playground, climbing structure, benches, and picnic tables.
Located next to Greencastle City Hall, a small pocket park was created in memory of long-time Greencastle park advocate Mary Rogers Field. The park offers picnic facilities, bench, ornamental flower beds, and is often used for meditation.
Ballard Park, named for a noted businessman and one-time mayor of Greencastle, is a 1.4-acre tract of land adjacent to the People Pathways trail that passes immediately east of the easternmost entrance to Walmart and along the south side of State Road 240 on the east side of Greencastle. A wooded and grassy area, it is the former site of the Ballard family homeplace.
