This stunning park was just right around the corner from our duplex in the heart of Riverside, California. Therefore it was a favorite place of ours to walk to and let our little Prince play at the playground and around the lakes. Fairmount Park was also listed as on the the American Planning Association’s top rated places in America. It is located south of the Santa Ana River and Route 60. Known as a “Frontline Park” since 2011, it was designed by Olmsted and Olsted in 1911 involving the creation of Lake Evans in 1924. After incidents of severe crimes took place in the area, damages by floods and deterioration of Lake Evans the Park was rehabilitated and revitalized in 2001, including the addition of a playground costing over 2.5 million dollars to build. The park has 2 tennis courts, a golf course, public barbecues, boat rentals, sailing, fishing, running, jogging, and walking trails along the Santa Ana River Trail. Summer concert series take place each year.
Rated: 3.8 of 5 stars. ~ Review by Leaf McGowan/Thomas Baurley, Technogypsie Productions ~
