The most direct way to Terre Haute is on 70West. However, there is construction on this route which may cause delays. It should take 1 hour and 30 minutes from Greenwood, but plan for longer due to possible traffic. US 40 West is a good alternate to 70W and can be reached easily from exit #41 (Route 231 N) around Cloverdale. US 40 runs parallel to 70W, about 2 miles north.

To Fairbanks Park from 70W:

Take exit 7 in Terre Haute, US 41 North/3rd Street

Travel North 1.5 miles and turn left onto Oak St.

Follow Oak St to the north entrance of the park and follow instructions for parking.

To Fairbanks Park from US 40 W:

US 40 West will turn into Wabash St in Terre Haute.

Wabash St will end at 3rd St.
Turn Left (South) on 3rd St.

In about 1/4 mile, turn right onto Oak St.
Follow Oak St to the north entrance of the park and follow instructions for parking.
