Fairview Park is located in the north part of Springfield at the intersection of North 19th Street and Griffiths Avenue. This 9-acre park was added to the park system in 1958. The park is bordered by Griffiths Avenue on the north, 19th Street on the east, and homes on the south and west. It is surrounded by residential neighborhoods.
Fairview Park contains three ball diamonds. The large diamond used for the Sandy Koufax League games is lighted and has an announcers box and large bleacher stands. Other facilities include playground with both new and older equipment in the north central area, a restroom and concession building north of the large ball diamond, two horseshoe courts and a picnic area. A parking lot along Griffiths Avenue accommodates about 50 cars and includes handicapped parking. A new parking area accessible from 19th Street has replaced the former basketball court area.
The Section of Springfield known, as Fairview had no public park for its residents so a vacant 80-acre lot was transformed with help from the Fairview Improvement association to create a park for its citizens in the 1950’s.
