Ridership: This is one of the least-used stations on the Haverhill Line, and actually one of the least-used on the whole Commuter Rail. It only gets 146 riders per day, with most to all of them being locals from the residential areas around.
Pros: Hmm...actually, there isn't too much to like about Greenwood. Well, there's ample parking here (76 spaces), and the crossing tender is cool.
Cons: Accessibility is the big issue, of course. I suppose it's more important to make the next station north, Wakefield, accessible, since it gets more riders, but still. More of an annoyance is the fact that the station's parking is actually paid street parking that stretches far up Main Street. I can't imagine it filling up too much, but it can be a long walk to the station from the further spaces.
Nearby and Noteworthy: There's a business block along Main Street right near the station. Although small, it does appear to have a few restaurants and shops.
Final Verdict: 5/10
I'm sort of giving this station a break, since its ridership is low. Well, "break" as in it gets a 5 instead of a 4. Accessibility shouldn't be too much of a priority here, since Wakefield is much busier, but Greenwood just isn't the best station, anyway. And though the surrounding trees are green, I want to see proper green woods, darn it!
