Fairborn Community Park

About this Location

Fairborn’s Community Park offers something for everyone, soccer and softball fields, seven picnic shelters, a 500-seat amphitheater, a disc golf course, volleyball, basketball, and tennis courts, and a two-mile paved walking and fitness trail surrounded by natural areas. A permanent conservation easement protects the wetland areas forever.

The wooded upper park serves as a land lab for Fairborn High School. BW Greenway, through a Clean Ohio Grant, added the northern wooded section to the park referred to as the Community Park Reserve.

Trail length: 2 miles of paved trail plus additional earthen and mulched trails

Trail difficulty: Easy, all trails are essentially flat

What to see: Natural areas include two restored prairies of native grasses, over 40 acres of forest, several wetland areas and vernal pools, a five-acre pond, the Beaver Creek, a wildflower trail, wet woods, dry woods, and restored wetlands. Access across the creek by a bridge.
