Welcome to the Health & Heritage Region

We are a collaborative partnership that focuses on promoting and cultivating the health, heritage, and heart of our region.

When you plug into the Health and Heritage Region, you are plugging in to a wealth of amenities that provide occupational and recreational advantages. Whether you are looking for a small city atmosphere, a homegrown hometown feel, or a quiet rural setting, this region has something for everyone. Businesses and entrepreneurs will find a friendly environment to grow and thrive in, ranging from charming downtown spaces to interstate business parks.  Home to several concert series and major festivals, including the Riley Festival in Greenfield and Winterfest in Fortville, this region is a great spot to live, work, play, and thrive. 




  Greenfield holds a spot in the heart of literary history as the birthplace of James Whitcomb Riley. That rich heritage is celebrated throughout the downtown in shop names, art, and trails. Our historic buildings, unique park settings, and plans to increase trail miles and amenities are making Greenfield a great option for homebuyers and businesses.



  Fortville’s historic downtown and surrounding neighborhoods create an idyllic setting for festivals and concerts throughout the year. The rich heritage of the community and growing reputation for having top quality dining cements the area as a small town making a big impact on the region.

The City of Greenfield will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Photon Automation, 275 Center Street, Greenfield, IN 46140. The purpose of the meeting will be to gather preliminary comments on a proposed park and performance area generally called Depot Street Park. The proposed location of the park is on property owned by the City of Greenfield Parks Department, on Depot Street between Riley Avenue and Pennsylvania Street. 

Depot Street Park was first introduced at the current proposed location in the 2018 Capital Improvements Plan. Comments and considerations will help guide the design process and creation of a formal design for the park. Staff from the Planning Department, Parks Department, and Context Design, consultants for the project, will be available to answer questions and take comments. 

Local attendance at this meeting is encouraged for feedback on the signature park to guide design concepts.
