The Fairview Park Trail, in western Decatur, traverses the large and beautiful Fairview Park and connects (via roadway) to the park's various attractions: an aquatic center, lake, gardens, pavilions, tennis courts, ball fields, skate park and dog park. The trail is mostly tree-covered and flat, except for two short, steep grades. In the west end of the park, the trail is built in part on a former interurban railway corridor of the Illinois Traction System. The trail also crosses and briefly passes sections of scenic Stevens Creek.
Access Fairview Park from Fairview Avenue, either via Eldorado Street or one block south, just west of Millikin University. There's parking on the drive shortly after entering, and several parking lots throughout the park. A convenient area with various lots is in the west end of the park, near the trail's connections to the Stevens Creek Bikeway and the Conservation District Trail.
