Located on the far west side of the city, Fairlane is bordered by Germantown Pike, Gettysburg Avenue, W. Third Street, and Liscum Drive. It is accessible via the US-35 exits on Gettysburg Avenue and Liscum Drive.

Fairlane is comprised of relatively modern homes, including ranches with attached garages, split-level homes, and New Traditional builds. Streets are laid out in a suburban-style pattern featuring larger lot sizes and winding streets.

Fairlane is home to the Dayton VA Medical Center campus and Dayton National Cemetery. As one of the largest VA campuses in the nation, this community asset features walking paths, the Dayton Grotto Gardens, and landscaped grounds.

The neighborhood is also adjacent to the recently restored Lakeside Park, providing residents with an opportunity to fish and enjoy nature. Fairlane’s position on the outer edge of the city make it ideal for those seeking larger lot sizes and relatively modern home construction. Proximity to the new Montgomery County Fairgrounds, Possum Creek MetroPark, and other natural amenities are also unique to Fairlane.
