Fairmont is a city of approximately 18,700 residents and is located directly off Interstate 79 and along the banks of the West Fork River and the Tygart Valley River, which then form the Monongahela River. Fairmont is known as the home of the first Father’s Day service, for Country Club Bakery, the home of the original pepperoni roll and as being the hometown of the Olympic gymnast, Mary Lou Retton. Fairmont has several parks including Morris Park, a family-oriented place to picnic or to take children to play. The walking/driving area around the park is over a mile long and has playgrounds, picnic pavilions, public restrooms and a Frisbee golf course.
Fairmont is located in Marion County which offers many attractions, events, and activities, but they all have one common theme: relaxation. No matter how you like to unwind, de-stress, or break free from work, we can find something to help you do it in Marion County.
Whether you want to spend time alone, with that special someone or with the entire family, we’ve got options to keep everyone happy. We have so much Heritage that we had to create a special section just for those activities. But we have plenty of cutting-edge options, too, including popular newcomers such as geocaching. Bicycle rides along the river, on rail-trails or in the BMX Park attract hundreds every year. If you want to enjoy some entertainment or cultural activities, consider the Sagebrush Round-Up on a Saturday night, or find out what theater or music might be scheduled at Fairmont State University or through the chamber music society.
From the peaks of the mountains into the swooping valleys, play your way all the way down! From the serene bird watching and hiking trails to the adventurous river boating, our outdoor terrain is the perfect playground. You don’t have to venture far anywhere in Marion County to find a way to enjoy the weather. From sports activities like batting cages to golf of all sorts (mini, disc, 18-hole), you can take your pick of ways to play. A great way to unwind is to take a boat trip along the West Fork.
