The Pennsy Trail runs from the 200 block of Center Street to County Road 400 East (south of and parallel to US 40/Main Street). This trail is a 3 mile linear park that resulted from a “rails-to-trails” project along the old Pennsylvania Railroad. It is paved with asphalt and intended for walking, jogging, biking, and rollerblading.
Trail visitors can learn about Greenfield history, as historical markers are located along the trail at points of interest. Trail neighbors consistently ranked the public benefits of providing open space, public recreation, health and fitness opportunities, community pride, aesthetic beauty, and disabled access as extremely important.
Central Park and Commons Park are small residential parks, each with less than 1 acre of space, offering playground equipment in a quiet, peaceful setting. The Henry B.

Near this creek is also Brandywine Park, a 60 acre sports complex that offers twenty soccer fields, three softball fields (2 adult/1 youth), two sand volleyball courts, a playground and a wooded trail winding along the creek for walking and hiking.
