In 2019 the town of Fairview received a grant from Collin County to help fund the construction of a new trail connection. The Park Board recently held a ribbon-cutting for the new trail announcing that is officially open and completely ready for use.
This trail is an important piece of the Town’s overall trail plan as it connects the Northern section of the commercial district to the Southern section. The trail begins at the intersection of Latham Drive and Fairview Parkway. Then goes north on Fairview Parkway and follows the DART ROW to an existing trail behind the Sorrel Apartments. This portion of the trail is just under one mile, bringing the total length of Fairview trails to 12 miles.
The Best place to access this new trail is to park in the parking lot behind Bowlero and begin at The Village Trail trailhead that takes you to the Village Green at the intersection of Latham Drive and Fairview Parkway. This portion of the trail is just under half a mile, making the trail from the trailhead to the bridge approximately 1.5 miles.
