Fairview Park

Fairview Park


Costa Mesa’s FAIRVIEW PARK is a wonderful park for horseback riding, hiking, walking, running, and biking enthusiasts. There are quiet picnic areas for small group activities and isolated alcoves for quiet contemplation. Near the entrance of the park are grassy and open areas to fly kites. Model glider airplane flying also take place at the center of the park with organized flying events and plenty of help from experts. Fairview Park is home to the City of Costa Mesa’s Summer Concert series.
