What we like about South Elgin

South Elgin is a village in Kane County, IL served by the townships of St. Charles and Elgin. Residents and visitors from everywhere come to South Elgin to enjoy a small-town atmosphere and picturesque scenery! Many people ask if South Elgin is a good place to live. We say yes!

Here are some of our favorite things about South Elgin:

Past to Present

Did you know? South Elgin started out as Clintonville. In 1835, a small settlement was established in Clintonville with flour mills and a blacksmith shop. The post office changed its name to South Elgin in the mid-1880s, and shortly after on April 20, 1897, the Village of South Elgin was incorporated. The area has transformed from a small farming community to the modern village it is today.

Currently, more than 27,497 residents call South Elgin home. As the area has grown and undergoes future development projects, it still embraces its history. South Elgin has started a major project compiling personal stories from residents and hopes to share the town’s history with future generations.

Parks and Recreation

You’ll have no problem finding outdoor activities in South Elgin! The village offers a number of parks and recreation opportunities.

With more than 56 acres of passive parkland, 125 acres of active parkland and 200 acres of natural areas, you have plenty of space to explore the outdoors! Blackhawk Park is on the west side of town, with athletics fields, a wildlife observation deck, fishing and acres of open space. If you’re looking for other great fishing spots, check out Crystal Springs Park or East Avenue Park.

One of South Elgin’s most notable outdoor experiences is the Fox River Trail. It runs directly through the village along Fox River. Enjoy running, biking and admiring the scenery on this 44-mile trail. But it doesn’t end there—the trail intersects with many others in the state of Illinois. Explore away!

Find even more parks, open spaces and outdoor activities on South Elgin’s website.

To do Around Town

If you’re looking for some traditional soul food, Dee’s Place is the go-to. Their southern-style dishes will leave your mouth watering. Or, for some great pizza, check out Riverside Pizza and Pub. They serve more than pie though—don’t forget about their wings and salads!
