Fairwood is Turning 50!

You’re invited to join the fun! King County Parks and King County Councilmember Reagan Dunn have teamed up to host a day-long festival on August 27th at Petrovitsky Park in honor of the community of Fairwood’s 50th Anniversary.

We have a long list of activities and events that the whole family will love. No event would be complete without support and this event definitely would not have happened without the generous contribution of our sponsors – Alaska Airlines, Cedar River Water District, Comprehensive Dental, Fairwood Golf & Country Club, King County Library System, Puget Sound Energy, Rosie Rourke– Managing Broker of John L. Scott, Soos Creek Water District, Taco Time, and UW Medicine.

    Can you please post the form/rules for the Fairwood 50 Art Contest (deadline May 31st)? I’ve seen the flyer which directs you back to this website for rules and the waiver form but cannot find it here. Thanks.

        Thanks! Can you recheck the link for the rules and contest details? When I clicked on the link it led me to beat the blerch (https://kingcountyparks.org/2016/04/06/beat-the-blerch-2016/) Thanks!

    We live on Lake Desire — We have NEVER been a part of Fairwood, only the school district. . . We are the Lake Desire community. We relate to Fairwood just as w would Kent or Maple Valley — nearby communities. Petrovitsky Park is in the Lake Desire area

    What is the route of the Fairwood 5k?

    1. Hi Mike, The start/finish line will be at Petrovitsky Park. We are finalizing the course this week and can forward you a map. Thanks!

    Fairwood Greens is hosting concerts in the park (Allen Park on 145th Ave SE) Sunday nights in August, beginning at 6 PM. Great evenings, great music, great fun! Free to all.

    We live on Petrovitsky and the last time there was an event at the park the people going there parked blocking our driveway. We could not see traffic coming, very poor judgment on drivers part. Please help the homeowners be safe.

    Does the event need any help from volunteers? Our church has hosted a diaper changing and nursing station at Renton River Days for the past few years and it’s always a big success at these type of large community gatherings. I’m pretty sure the bathrooms at the park don’t have baby changing stations in them. Please let me know if we could help in this way and we will work with KCP to make it happen. Thanks!
