Fairview Park

Fairview Park was established in 1931. Fairview Park Road winds its way through the park from W. McMillan Street to Ravine Street. The park is wooded with old stone walls created by the WPA in 1940. Along the winding street you will find picnic areas, a playground, ball fields, a swimming pool, a beautiful vistas with views of downtown, Over The Rhine, and the Mill Creek Valley. The old incline piers can be found and there is also a series of 200 steps leading up to the park from W. McMicken Avenue below.

Many of the parks in the city have spectacular views with each giving a different and unique perspective and this one is no exception.
