Parks and RecreatiONFor a community to thrive, there must be dedicated spaces for recreation. These spaces provide us the opportunity to unwind, have fun and recharge. Plainfield Charter Township's Parks and Recreation Service recognizes this and works diligently to support and develop recreational areas and activities for the community of Plainfield Township. In an effort to more effectively do so, the Parks and Recreation Master plan was established and is updated every five years.

Plainfield Charter Township maintains several community parks scattered throughout the township. Some, such as Premier,  Grand Isle, Versluis and the D. W. Richardson parks, are multi-use complexes, however most are simply designed for the enjoyment of our local residents. Our park system offers a variety of recreational accoutrements, including sports fields, lakes, great fishing, playgrounds, picnic spaces, and beautiful destinations for family outings personal breaks from the hustle and bustle of daily life!
