Boettler Park is home to the historic 1885 Lichtenwalter one room schoolhouse. Licthenwalter SchoolhouseLargely 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 Historical Society and the loan of the Jackson Township one-room schoolhouse.

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.
