Park History


Green's first public recreational park was dedicated on November 22, 1997. The park consists of 82 acres and is host to many youth activities including the Green soccer association and Green youth lacrosse.

Recreation and fitness enthusiasts can take advantage of the 1.2-mile asphalt walking trail that winds through a grassy meadow and around the newly renovated pond.

Fishing Pond


Young and old fisherman can take advantage of a stocked pond. No fishing license is required. Residents are encouraged to throw back the small ones.

Sports & Picnics


Tennis, pickleball, and basketball are also popular activities at Boettler Park. From April through October the courts are available from dawn to dusk.

Picnicking has become a favorite activity for families at Boettler Park. The pavilions are a popular place to host family reunions, parties, and other celebrations. The Freda Hunter Bates pavilion can accommodate 200 people and the Boettler pavilion can hold 100 people. For more information about rentals, please click here.

Historic Schoolhouse


Boettler Park is home to the historic 1885 Lichtenwalter one room schoolhouse. Largely destroyed by an arson fire in 2016, the City is in the process of rebuilding the schoolhouse. Braun & Steidl Architects have been hired to provide design services for the restoration project and work is expected to begin early spring 2018. The 3rd grade classes held at Lichtenwalter continued this year with the generous support of the Green Historical Society and the loan of the Jackson Township one-room schoolhouse.

Playground


Boettler Park also boasts the award-winning "Heritage Hill Playground." This 30,000 square foot playground was built by more than 400 community volunteers. The cost of the structures, over $100,000, was raised through community donations and foundation grants. In 2004, the playground won a category 5 award for the "best new recreation facility" in the state of Ohio. Heritage Hill playground is visited by thousands of children annually.
