Welcome to Geneva, with its beautiful setting, extensive parks, and historic Dutch windmill standing nearly 70 feet tall.
A popular destination for residents and visitors alike, Geneva features an abundance of shops and restaurants and a scenic location along the Fox River. The suburb continues to see its population grow as Chicago’s urban sprawl spreads further west.
The Fabyan Windmill, an authentic, fully operational Dutch windmill, is in near-perfect condition and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The windmill 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 park districts in the area, serving over 40,000 people a year. The district has more than 30 parks with nature trails, athletic fields, aquatic and recreation centers, a skate park, and disc golf course. An expansive 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, the Chicago Steel hockey team.
Geneva has a stop on Metra’s Union Pacific West Line with daily service to Chicago or west to Elburn. The city is also within easy driving distance of the DuPage Airport.
