|Greenwood's small-town charm and older homes provide a stark contrast to the new and extensive residential development that has taken place in recent years to the east, west and south. The area’s average housing costs range between $100,000 and $300,000. Commercial expansion has also been a major factor in the town’s growth since the opening of the Greenwood Park Mall—a large shopping center with major clothing, appliance and electronics retailers as well as many restaurants.|
|The city of Greenwood is located 12 miles south of Indianapolis on US 31 in Johnson County. It is 10 miles north of the Johnson County seat, Franklin. Greenwood is easily accessible from I-65, US 31 and State Road 135. Only 5 miles north of Greenwood, I-65 and I-465 connect to all major interstates (I-70, I-74, I-69) crossing Indiana.|
