Coal City is located in Grundy County and is conveniently located near major Interstates. It’s a rural town of approximately 5500 with great schools, great people and proximity to industry. It’s a great place to work, live and play but if you’re looking for some big city excitement Coal City is a mere sixty minute drive or train ride away from Chicago.
Our warm, friendly residents take great pride in our Village and what it has to offer. Our churches, Library District, School District, Fire District, civic organizations, and business community work with the Village to ensure the needs of our citizens are met.
We have village parks supporting baseball, softball, basketball, hockey, skateboarding and soccer. Our Park Board delivers entertainment and activities year round with concerts in Campbell Park, a car show, a city garage sale, hockey tournament and much much more. We are close to lakes and rivers for boating or fishing or just hanging out with your family.
