Boy Scout Park

Located next to the Plainfield Park District Recreation & Administration Center at 23729 West Ottawa Street, is another lesser known park within Plainfield, Boy Scout Park.

Pond with paved walking loop.

Boy Scout Park is a nice, clean, and quiet park located very close to Downtown Plainfield. The park consists of a paved walking path loop, which circles a large pond. There is also a wooden pier that goes out over the water from the North side of the pond, and a hill on the East side of the park which is used for sledding in the winter.

This park has a large parking lot, as it is located behind the Park District Admin building and shares the same parking lot. It is then a short walk to the back of the building to access the park.

Pond at the center of the park.

The paved walking path consists of an approximately 1/5th of a mile loop around the pond, which makes the entire shoreline of the pond easily accessible for fishing. Also the pier at the North side of the pond makes a fantastic fishing point as well.

To the East of the pond you will notice a hill which is used for sledding during the winter when there is enough snow on the ground. This park also has a shelter to the East which covers 12 picnic tables, which is available to rent for events. Finally, there is also a playground with drinking fountain located at the Northeast corner of the park near the entrance and the shelter.
