The Monon Trail in Westfield, Indiana

The Monon Trail in Westfield.

Established by a group of Quakers in 1834, Westfield is now a rapidly growing Indianapolis suburb located 25 miles north of Indy’s downtown. With more than 30,000 residents, Westfield offers a variety of housing—most of it newer—from starter homes in the low $200,000s to condos to large custom homes.

Like many of Indy’s other suburbs, Westfield is in the midst of revitalizing its historic downtown. Dubbed Grand Junction Plaza and Park, the project includes gathering spaces, an arts garden, new retail and much more. For recreation, the city holds over 70 miles of trails within its borders, including 5.5 miles of the popular Monon Trail. If you or your kids play sports, you’ll probably spend many hours at Grand Park, Westfield’s “sports campus.” Grand Park’s 400 acres feature a full-range of championship-level outdoor facilities for baseball, softball and field sports including soccer, football, field hockey and lacrosse.

Young families are attracted to Westfield’s excellent school system, Westfield-Washington Schools. In fact, Westfield expects an influx of new students over the next few years, and voters approved two referendums in late 2016 and early 2017 to pay for hiring additional teachers, expanding programs, and improving school facilities.
