Welcome to Darien


The City of Darien is located within DuPage County, which hails as the second most populated county in Illinois. Darien is one of the highest income communities in the county. Neighboring communities include Burr Ridge, Clarendon Hills, Downers Grove, Lemont, Willowbrook, Westmont and Woodridge.

The Darien City Council has placed a strong emphasis on providing effective municipal services while maintaining one of the lowest municipal tax rates in DuPage County. Typically viewed as a volunteer oriented community, Darien has pledged to work closely with citizens, the business community and local organizations. As an example, a Citizen of the Year dinner banquet is held annually to honor a citizen who has devoted his/her time and efforts toward participation in various community activities.

The City is designed, and will continue to grow, as a planned community with a balance of private and multiple residential buildings. The City strives to provide the convenient shopping areas and the commercial and light-research type of industry needed in the proper areas to keep the tax base as broad as possible. Affordable homes, a highly rated school system, and one of the lowest crime rates provide residents with an excellent opportunity to live in a safe, wholesome environment. It is a community that centers its activities on home and family - "Darien...a nice place to live!"
