The Park Department is responsible for snow removal, general maintenance of municipal facilities and buildings, park and trail maintenance and equipment services.

Fairmont is home to a very extensive park and trail system. There are miles of scenic recreation trails, paved trails, off-road trails, paths through the wooded areas of our numerous parks, and walkways along our tranquil lakes.

Our park system features nearly 400 beautiful acres of parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, green spaces, flower gardens, and disc golf. During the winter months, the parks grounds offer areas for sledding, ice skating, and snow skiing.
