Fair Oaks is a census-designated place (CDP) in Cobb County, Georgia, United States. The population was 8,443 at the 2000 census.

The USPS and most locals consider Fair Oaks to be a part of Marietta, Georgia. Except for actual residents of Fair Oaks, very few locals even know it exists as a separately-counted area. The name is also rarely used by local businesses, even in the immediate area. Mableton, the only other CDP in the county, is far more well-known, being much larger and not immediately next to an incorporated city.

The area was named for its many mature native oak trees. This however is threatened by nearby Dobbins Air Reserve Base, and new Federal Aviation Administration regulations regarding flight paths for takeoff and landing. In 2005, the lower house of the Georgia General Assembly passed a resolution in support of the community, which was built in the early 20th century, well before the military base.[1]
