Parks At Fairfield Bay
Fairfield Bay is your outdoor playground all year long. Whether you’re playing at a park, hiking, biking, swimming, playing a round of tennis or golf, you’ll find plenty of options to fill your day.
Woodland Mead Park
There’s no shortage of activities related to nature, sports and even a piece of history! Big and Little feet alike have plenty of places to roam in this beautifully landscaped park that includes a playground, basketball courts, mini golf, and trails. There’s even a bit of history to absorb – look for a “thong tree” – used by generations of Native Americans to mark important spots – right at the entrance to the park. Before exploring too far, you can find out more information at the Visitor’s Center and Chamber Office on the east side of the park.
Ed Leamon Park
Designed and developed by The Van Buren County Master Gardeners, these award-winning gardens are beckoning to be explored. Refreshing for the soul. Soak up the ambience of lush landscaping as you stroll through the rose gardens, or cross over and sit for a while to catch a few butterflies in their planned garden. There’s even a log cabin used for special events. Site of the Annual Bloomin’ in the Bay festival and plant sale in May.
Whether you’re on vacation or a full-time resident, you’ll want to bring your dog here to play Frisbee, throw ball or do a dog’s favorite thing – take a “W” (shorthand for walk!).
