Fairview Park

Fairview Park is located in the Eastlake neighborhood at 2900 Fairview Ave E, 98102. It is 0.8 acres.

In his 1903 report, John Charles recommended a number of smaller parks and playgrounds located throughout the city, including three possible sites that “are desirable on the east and south shores of Lake Union.”  The Fairview Park location he identified as a “pleasing site,” though “not as conveniently situated nor as useful for playground purposes” as the site further south (which includes today’s Terry Pettus Park).

Today the park includes a view platform, central lawn area, picnic facilities and small boat launch.
