Plainfield is a prosperous and bustling Village, located 35 miles southwest of Chicago, with a population of 39,581 residents. Easily accessible, the Village is close to several interstates and state highways making it an excellent place to live, own a business, or simply spend the day shopping and dining in our historic downtown.
Downtown Plainfield, which is the heart of the community, is a vibrant, pedestrian-focused destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Each year, the downtown is home to a number of special events including Plainfield Fest, classic car nights, movies, and concerts. Plainfield is also home to the Lake Renwick Heron Rookery, numerous historic districts and landmarks, a wonderful park and trail system, and the DuPage River which provides numerous outdoor recreational opportunities.
At the crossroads of the historic Lincoln Highway and Route 66, Plainfield continues to build upon its already rich history, and the Village Government is well positioned to accommodate growth and welcomes new commercial and industrial development to help parallel the success of its residential expansion.
