“I like it because it’s diverse,” said Trayven Call, 21-year-old theatre major who said he regularly visits the park.

Westminster student Trayven Call said one of his favorite activities to do at Fairmont Park is to sit back and watch the ducks.

“Parks are awesome,” Call said. “I think they are just a good way to get out of the house and be recreational.”

With fall in full swing, the leaves have begun to change, and some students are making it a priority to see it outside of campus.

Elaine Sheehan, 19-year-old sophomore double majoring in English and Spanish, said she enjoys going outside with friends, especially in fall.

“I’ve been [at Fairmont Park] four or five times with friends,” she said. “I love it when the leaves start to change.”

Sheehan had a few words of advice to those who have not been able to go to a park this season: “Go out and enjoy fall while it lasts, before we can’t go outside because of stupid snow.”
