Fairbanks Ranch Neighborhood Guide

Fairbanks Ranch is a part of Rancho Santa Fe in spirit, but is also separate in that it is a census-designated place. The 1,240-acre neighborhood is made of up of two gated communities. The entrances are staffed 24/7 with security guards, and there are many other amenities to be found, such as tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts, walking and riding trails, an equestrian center, playground and picnic areas, and a lake with fishing. Many residents are also members of the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club. There are seven other golf courses in the immediate area if one should desire a little variety.

The San Dieguito County and Black Mountain Open Space parks are a few miles away, with their hiking and riding trails and unspoiled natural vistas. Horseback-riding enthusiasts will find plenty to provide for their passion here, since the area abounds with stables, riding schools, and equestrian facilities.

The Fairbanks Ranch Village Plaza, at the intersection of San Dieguito Road and El Apajo, is the main commercial district, and there are many other small upscale shopping centers nearby. Freeway access is through Interstate-5 and State Route 56.
