About Des Plaines, IL
Des Plaines is a city in Cook County, Illinois, United States. Its population was 58,364 at the 2010 census. The city is a suburb of Chicago and is located just a few minutes north of O'Hare International Airport. It is situated on and is named after the Des Plaines River, which runs through the city just east of its walkable downtown area.
The City's elementary and secondary schools are nationally acclaimed. The art and theater guilds, the community concert series, a fine public library system, and a historical museum are true indications of the cultural growth of the community. A progressive park district and extensive forest preserve options accommodate the recreational needs of all ages.
During the past two decades industrial growth has also been phenomenal, the City having become a raw materials and finished products distributing center as well as the headquarters of several major corporations. The combination of superior air transportation, good railroads, and a network of expressways have fostered the full development of Des Plaines. Today, Des Plaines is indeed a progressive city characterized by diverse residences, industrial opportunities, and an abundance of business and trade facilities.
We are fortunate to have the attitude and assets that make it not just a city with great transportation options, but a city where its far easier to fly to any destination in the world, bike or walk through miles of forest preserve, enjoy Chicago in less than 30 minutes by train, and return home to a community that devotes itself to a great quality of life.
