Fairview Park amenities such as the lawn area, parking lots, restrooms, picnic areas, the fly field, train, etc. are not open to the public at this time.

Specific trails at Fairview Park are open for walking, running and bicycling as shown on this map.   

In some areas trails will remain closed at this time to foot traffic so that the environment can be observed and any changes documented.  The closure of Fairview Park potentially created changes in the use of these areas by the flora and fauna, much like is being seen at Yosemite Park, Griffith Park, and even the beaches of Catalina.  Fairview Park is home to five different natural habitat environments, several protected species, and more than 30 special species in the open space areas.  Most of these species fall under special protective environmental laws and some areas are protected by preservation agreements.

Open Trails at Fairview Park


Fairview Park is the City’s largest park, hosting 195 acres of open space – natural area, and 13 acres of manicured landscape for a total of 208 acres. Within the 195 acres of open space there are two Nationally Registered Cultural Resource Historic Sites and five distinct habitat ecosystems which are home to many rare and endangered plant and animal species. The Park acts as a regional gateway to the Santa Ana River Trail, the Orange Coast River Park, and adjacent Orange County Talbert Regional Park, offering users multiple passive recreational opportunities such as picnicking, kite flying, wildlife observation, environmental education, and 7 miles of trails for walking or bicycling. The Park also hosts a miniature railroad and model airplane flying field both run by partnering non-profits, and hosts a number of City-wide special events throughout the year.
