Pictured above is Plainfield's newest park, Friendship Gardens, which occupies a special place in the community. Designed as a natural setting for reflection and contemplation, it honors those who gave their lives for their country, and those who have worked to preserve Plainfield's quality life. The park contains three connecting pagodas and a fountain set among rocks, flowers, shrubs and trees. Friendship Gardens was a dream that became reality through a public / private partnership of citizens, local businesses, associations, the Indiana Boys' School and the Town of Plainfield. This partnership earned Plainfield the Larry Conrad Award - Indiana's highest award for community achievement - in 1997.
White Lick Creek Trail extends from Friendship Gardens up to Franklin Park. Plainfield relocated an iron truss bridge from C.R. 800 S to Friendship Gardens which now serves as a handsome trail bridge.
