Located in Allegan County, the City of Plainwell is known as “The Island City” because one cannot enter downtown from any direction without first crossing a bridge. Plainwell has seven parks that offer a variety of recreational activities from basketball to pickle ball. Not to mention the river walk paved trail that encompasses the downtown and connects to three parks. Conveniently located minutes from Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, Plainwell offers unique local shops and events, restaurants and hotels, and two nationally-recognized historic districts that can be enjoyed by walking our river walk along the Kalamazoo River and Mill Race.
