A gem of a town, just west of Indy. I like to call Plainfield the town of a million miles of trails! I might be exaggerating a bit, but one of the coolest things about Plainfield is its trail and park system. There is probably 50+ miles of trails winding thru several parks and neighborhoods..so if you are interested in trails, but Plainfield on your short list!
Plainfield is located just west of Indy and has great highway access via I70..so you can be downtown to work or play within 20 min. Its a smaller town than its cousins directly to the north - Avon and Plainfield - but its in no less demand! In fact, due to its smaller size, housing is actually harder to find in Plainfield. There are a few builders that have come into the area to help alleviate this issue - some good...some not so much - so be careful! Houses are selling quickly and many times above list price.
Two of my families favorite locations in Plainfield are the Aquatic Center and Hummel Park. The Aquatic Center has both an indoor and outdoor water park complete with a relaxing lazy river and slides. Hummel features a splash park and a brand new playground!
