Fairmont Park doesn't get as much attention as its big brother Sugarhouse Park two blocks east, but the tiny pond and large patch of trees can be worth checking. The park has a small pond on the east side, and large cottonwoods and various other deciduous and coniferous trees throughout. The park has had issues with crime and other "activities" near the east end so beware.
The park doesn't have a big bird list, but does have the usual MALLARDS and CANADA GEESE. There have been some unusual waterfowl recorded here including HOODED MERGANSER, GADWALL, and WOOD DUCK. Both AMERICAN WHITE PELICAN and DOUBLE-CRESTED CORMORANT have also been see on the pond., AMERICAN CROW can be seen here with some frequency, and for several years COMMON GRACKLE appeared to have nested here so that may be worth checking for.
The park can be reached by taking I-80 exits 125 or 126. From both go north to 2100 South. If you come from Exit 125 go right on 2100--if you come from exit 126, go left on 2100 south. Make your way to 900 east and go south. The park is squeezed between 900 and 1100 east and between Sugarmont Drive and I-80 on the south side. There are parking areas on the north, east, and est sides of the park.
