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 consists of two playgrounds.  A large 25,000 square foot playground sits atop one of the highest elevation points in the park.  Heritage Hill Playground was originally built in 2002 by 400 community volunteers.  The playground was rebuilt in 2016 with approximately 200 volunteers and is enjoyed by thousands of children each year.  A smaller tot playground is located behind the historic schoolhouse.  This playground was originally built in 1997 and rebuilt in 2020.  This playground has features that attend to the needs of special needs children encouraging for interactive play among children and adults.
