Fred Greenwood Park

Fred Greenwood Park is a city park south of Medina. The land in South Point Meadows, former farmland, was purchased for utilization as park land. The park was built in 1985 named after Fred Greenwood in recognition of his many contributions to the city and the community.

Fred Greenwood was a mayor of Medina for two terms from 1966 -1974. He was known as a tireless worker and supporter of the safety service. During his time in office he pushed to acquire park land and started the park system. The park system expected builders to donate three percent of their developments to the city. Ray Mellert Park was established during his time as a mayor. Mayor Greenwood and many others in the country fell in line with the national environmental movement. They understood that they had to start preserving land to enhance the Medina experience.
