    I have enjoyed walking here many times. There is a wetlands area, and there are many ducks and geese. It is fun to see them just born, and to watch their families grow up!
    There is also a swimming beach, and children's spray pad, that I'm sure will be enjoyed again. (after Covid).

    Perfect place to walk my senior dog. Not too far to walk the trail, loop around the pond & then back. Wears my pup out with lots to sniff & off trail area to explore. Everyone there is always very friendly which is not what I experience at some of the other parks around the Portland area. If you’re looking for a challenging hike, this is not the place for you. Also, I don’t recommend going after dark as there is occasionally a small homeless presence.

    A great little neighborhood park that hosts lots of community events. Beautiful pavilion for weddings and other events. Nice kids play area. But don’t miss the covered bridge over Fairview Creek that leads to a wonderful loop trail over to nearby ponds.

    The Heslin House was built in Fairview, Oregon as a boarding house in the 1890's to service the train depot a block away. Unfortunately it had some competition from a closer hotel and another boarding house. It incurred debts and was sold to the lumber owner, John Patrick Heslin.

    The historic Fairview City Jail is located behind the house by a playground. The jail is on the national Register of Historic Places. It is a small building with just two cells. It was used to lock up drunks.

    Inside there is a wall filled with WWII posters. and another that has photos of a historic nature about Fairview. There are some items that have been donated to the museum from the time period, but nothing that was owned by the Heslin family itself. So if you pay the admission fee it might feel a bit pricey for what there is here to see. The actual highlight is the Historic Fairview City Jail. It is very interesting to see what it is like inside the jail. Lucky for me that I happen to live near Fairview so I didn't need to pay an admission fee. I did donate a few dollars all the same.

    The Heslin House Museum is open from Noon till 4 PM for guided tours on the third Saturday of the month. Admission id FREE for Fairview Residents, and East County Historical Organization (ECHO) members. Otherwise the admission is $7 for Adults, and $5 for Seniors.
