My favorite thing about Fairview Park is the parks. I like walking my dog, Cosmo, in Bain Park, which is by my house. Morton Park is great, too. It has a splash pad, tennis courts, basketball courts, a picnic area and a huge soccer field. I like to meet my friends there.
I love how everything's close together in Fairview Park. It’s easy for me to walk and ride my bike places.
This year, my parents wanted me to do remote learning because of the pandemic. I liked my classes but missed seeing my friends every day. I really hope I get to go back to in-person school next year. (Oh, and my mom said I should mention that I got all A’s.)
I really like going to 808 Shave Ice. It’s a snow cone place. I get all different things, but I usually get strawberry and blueberry.
Every summer from first through fifth grade I went to camp at the Gemini Center. I made lots of friends and we did really fun activities like dodgeball and swimming. We also took field trips to cool places like Sky Zone. That’s probably my favorite Fairview Park memory.
Being a good neighbor means you help people when they need help.
Our house has a big picture window in front. A lot of our neighbors have them, too. When I walk down the street, I can see all the dogs sitting on couches looking out the big front windows. And Cosmo can look out ours, too.
