Fairview Community Park Historic District is significant under Criterion A: Community Planning and Development for its association with local, regional and national work relief efforts spanning the Depression era , including the Federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) , Public Works Administration (PWA) and WPA Federal Arts Project (FAP) programs. Between 1922 and 1927 , the open farmland and rural character of the Village of Fairview was transformed into residential subdivisions, as a suburb of the City of Cleveland. A planned community park for the Village of Fairview not only embraced the regional civic pride and park movements going on in Greater Cleveland , but also created an amenity to complement its new suburban subdivision design. Fairview Community Park was dedicated on September 8, 1928.
