Welcome to Geneva, with its beautiful Riverwalk, extensive parks and historic Dutch windmill towering nearly 70 feet above.
Located on the western edge of the Chicago suburbs, the city of Geneva attracts residents and visitors alike. The area continues to see its population grow as Chicago’s urban sprawl spreads further west.
The city is a popular destination for visitors thanks to its scenic location along the Fox River and an abundance of shops and restaurants along its downtown Riverwalk.
The Fabyan Windmill, an authentic fully operational Dutch windmill, stands nearly 70 feet tall. The 1850s windmill is in near perfect condition and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Dutch Mill was featured on a series of U.S. postage stamps, one of five selected for the “Windmills USA” book of stamps.
Geneva has one of the most extensive parks districts in the area, serving over 40,000 people a year. The district includes more than 30 parks offering biking and walking trails, athletic fields, fitness, aquatic and recreation centers, a skate park and disc golf course. An extensive bike trail includes parts of the Fox River Trail and the Illinois Prairie Path.
Since 1991, Geneva has been home to the Kane County Cougars minor league baseball team; and since 2015, home to the Chicago Steel hockey team.
Students attend Geneva School District 304 schools including six elementary schools, two middle schools and Geneva High School.
Geneva has a stop on Metra’s Union Pacific/West line with daily service to Chicago or west to Elburn. The city is within easy driving distance to O’Hare and Midway airports as well as the DuPage Airport.
