Westfield, IndianaSource

Family Circle Magazine recently named Westfield, Indiana as one of 2014’s ‘10 Best Towns for Families’. This comes the year after Westfield was named one of ‘Top 50 Places to Live’ by CNN Money Magazine. We think it’s no coincidence that Westfield is getting so much attention lately. It truly is an amazing town! Here’s what we love about it:

1.  small town with big city amenities 

Westfield, Indiana has all the charm that you want in a small town without losing any of the amenities of a big city. There’s a real sense of community here. Neighbors know and help one another. Historic downtown is quaint and brimming with energy. Many small businesses have set up shop in Westfield, adding to its charm. But when there’s a store or restaurant you can’t find in Westfield, downtown Indianapolis is a short drive away.

2.  affordable housing

You’ll find beautiful and spacious homes in Westfield, yet the median home price is just over $200,000. Whatever your budget, there’s a home in Westfield that’ll fit it!

3.  great schools

Greatschools.org gives Westfield city schools an 8 out of 10 rating. Certain Westfield schools get even higher ratings, with Monon Trail Elementary School getting a perfect 10.

4.  GRAND PARK

Grand Park has been called a sports village but it’s so much more! With dozens of baseball diamonds and multi-purpose fields, miles of trails, and a 335,000 square foot, state-of-the-art indoor soccer, Grand Park is a place where the Hoosier passion for amateur sports comes alive.

5.  grand junction park and plaza

If there was any doubt that Westfield was a city on the rise, the Grand Junction Park and Plaza project puts those doubts to bed. Listen to this list: amphitheater and great lawn, interactive water play area, arts garden, full-sized ice skating rink, retail space, and nature play area. And you better believe there will be plenty of space for concerts, festivals, and programs. Grand Junction will be the new focal point of Westfield.

6.  events and celebrations

You won’t ever complain of boredom in Westfield. This town knows how to celebrate! With events and celebrations like Westfield Rocks the 4th!, Bike Rodeo, Farmer’s Market, Cool Creek Concert Series, and Movies in the Park, along with regular programming from the Westfield Library, there’s always something to do here.
