Fairview Park is an urban park to the north of central Dublin, Ireland, in the district of Fairview. The park is noted for its seasonal bedding displays but also has playing fields, a children's playground and tree-lined walks. Originally a tidal mud flat which was used for land fill in the early 1900s, the park was developed in the late 1920s and Bye Laws were formally adopted by Dublin Corporation in 1934.
The Tolka River runs right past the park, Clontarf Road DART station is located near the park, and across the railway line there is a 400-metre athletics track and a Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann hall.
A memorial statue of Seán Russell was unveiled by Cumann Uaigheann Na Laochra Gael, (the National Graves Association group), in Fairview Park, September 1951. A new statue of him was erected in May 2009.
In March, 1983, prior to the first Dublin Pride parade, a march was held from the city centre of Dublin to Fairview Park. This was in response to the murder of Declan Flynn and the resulting trial.
The park was disrupted during the construction of the Dublin Port Tunnel.
The park contains several association football pitches. Both Sheriff Y.C. and Belvedere play home games in the park.

  • Beautiful public park, gorgeous floral displays and lush green grass beside the Folks river, which is sadly not too clean but still home to beautiful swans, ducks and the usual ubiquitous seagulls! It also contains an excellent children's playground and skateboard ramp; this is one place where Dublin Corporation definitely got it right and deserve to be very proud of the fact!
  • Great local amenity Used by all age groups Cycle paths, children's playground and a skateboard space for the teen-ager. The Co Council are to be seriously commended for the wonderful flowers they are in charge of creating. They really add to the park and always raise an appreciative smile by people passing by.
