  • They have done a great job of trying to make the park more ecological. Great walking trails. There are the problems with coyotes, but despite that concern, it is really a beautiful park  more »
  • This park is wonderful! A great place for kids, dogs and activities. It's quite a gorgeous park that drops off a bluff into a lower section with many more bike/running trails. My dog loves it here!  more »

  • This park and the city that surrounds it is a very safe area, very clean as well, it is on a bluff making for a nice view to the west. There is a community of fliers of model air planes here and just across the street once a month they have train rides on a donation requested basis on on miniature trains. The park is mostly of natural landscape with many trails for hiking and bicycle use, it's not a manicured landscape though there is grassy areas. There's 4 single stall restrooms , not much shade here, parking plentiful Mon thru Fri, it is a very big park, right next to a river ,
  • I love Fairview Park for walking the dogs in a beautiful open space. Summer concerts here are the best, and the view of the ocean is gorgeous all year round. Keep Fairview park undeveloped!
  • I personally named this park : Airport Park. There is a long opened "Runway" for the model airplanes. I have seen many people who flew their airplanes here. There are also areas for model cars. Because of its variation in elevations and natural beauty. This park is definitely one of my favorite ones in the Orange County.
  • Love this park. An awesome place to feel like you're away from the city without leaving it. Adjacent to the Santa Ana River trail with great walking/jogging trails.
  • Fairview Park is really more of a nature preserve. It is roughly 90% undeveloped. The 10% that is developed include grass, trees parking off of Placentia Avenue, bathrooms and a few picnic benches. It is also the home of Harbor soaring society and radio control model Club. No gas engines allowed, electric or gliders only. Be sure to touch base with one of the locals before flying to be made aware of the rules, where to fly, where not to fly, Etc.
