Costa Mesa Parks – Fairview Park


Fairview Park is located on Placentia Avenue next to Estancia High School and is near the end of the Santa Ana River Trail.

Fairview Park



Aside from being a great place to just bike, this park offers many incredible amenities. It has room up top for kids to run and fly kites, kick soccer balls, and generally have a great time. 

In the summer Fairview Park hosts Costa Mesa’s Free Concerts.  In addition, there is an area to fly remote controlled airplanes.  There are also hills that frequently have children and adults alike enjoying mountain biking and jumping.  With 208 acres, there is lot of space in Fairview park for everything from walking your dog, to flying your RC plane, to riding model trains, to just getting out and expending some energy and enjoying a beautiful day.  In addition to the activities we enjoy today activites, the park was once home to The Indians of Lukup.

Fairview Park has both an upper and lower mesa and can be used to access the Talbert Nature Preserve and the Santa Ana River Trail.

Over the last couple of years, there have been improvements made to Fairview Park via Fairview Park Wetlands and Riparian Habitat Project.  These include the restoration of approximately 17 acres of riparian habitat. Once completed, the project will include new trails from which we can enjoy the natural habitats.
