Parks & Recreation
The mission of the Fairview Recreation Department is to offer a variety of quality activities to residents of all ages so that their leisure time may be spent in a productive, meaningful, and enjoyable manner in a safe environments. These activities may take the form of educational, instructional, or recreational programs.
We offer a variety of seasonal sports programs for boys and girls throughout the year, such as soccer, basketball, and baseball. We also offer a 6-week summer camp program for children entering Kindergarten through 8th grade in the following September of that same year. All of our programs are available to Fairview residents only.
We are always open to suggestions for any new programs you would like to see offered in the future.
The goals of our programs are to build self-esteem; teach social skills (values, communication, and human relations); teach physical skills (fitness and health); build relationships among peers and between parent and child; support and strengthen family life; develop responsibility, decision making, and leadership skills; promote team spirit; and, most of all, to have fun.
Some of our sports programs are competitive in nature, yet we strive to achieve this without fear of ridicule or failure. Volunteers coach all of our sports programs, and without you, we could not run these programs. We appreciate the time and effort put into making these teams successful by all the parents who so generously volunteer their time; not only is it rewarding for your child, but it is beneficial for all parties involved.
