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.

Historic Schoolhouse

Boettler Park is home to the historic 1885 Lichtenwalter one room schoolhouse. Largely destroyed by an arson fire in 2016, the City has completed restoration of the schoolhouse. Green's 3rd grade classes use the Lichtenwalter schoolhouse in partnership with the Green Historical Society to learn about school in the 1800s.


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.
