Depending on where you live in Uptown, you may or may not have found the jem that is Fairview Park. My son and I accompanied a friend of mine and her son, both of the boys just under two years old, to this beautiful park right off of W. McMillan Avenue. Mommies, if you are looking for a way to tire out your child so they will take a nice long nap later on, Fairview is the place for you. They have a huge new playground even I couldn’t resist doing a little climbing on.
On top of a playground, basketball courts, and baseball fields, this park has a new public swimming pool that opens daily at 2:30pm for just a $2 admission fee. We left a bit earlier in the day, but you can be sure to see us there soon.
When its time for a little lunch I recommend you sit down in front of the beautiful view that I imagine gave the park its name. Enjoy your city big and little Uptowners!
