I have lived in Fairway my whole life and would only have positive things to say about the community. Everyone is so friendly and it is located in a great area of Kansas City. It's almost like living in a small town, but with the benefit and amenities of a big city.

I like living here. It's pretty safe and there's opportunities to do a lot. Good people. Very nice park and pretty neighborhood overall.
Lived here basically my whole life, very nice, very low crime rate, very easy to access many places due to I-35 being less than 10 minutes away.
