Fairfield Park is a village and civil parish located in the Central Bedfordshire district of Bedfordshire, England.

The village was established in the early 2000s in the buildings and grounds of Fairfield Hospital, a defunct psychiatric hospital which closed in 1999. The village consists of some 900 dwellings of different housing types and about 100 apartments in the former hospital building.[1]

Fairfield Park was originally intended to become a new village in its own right, but was designated by planners as part of Stotfold civil parish.[2] However, on 1 April 2013 the village became a separate civil parish, and elected its own parish council in May 2013.[3]

Amentities in the village include a community centre, sports hall, and Fairfield Park Lower School.
