“So relaxing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a pretty park, with lots of green open space, small picnic shelters, a beautiful lake for boats and fishing. A dog park is also located here, and you'll see lots of families, groups of friends and couples just enjoying Lexington!

“Fun park in Lexington!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

This park is great. It has big playground for the kids. Also, in the summer it has paddle boat rentals. This park is mid-size and easy to relax and have fun for the day.

“Great place to take a break from a "relaxing" vacation.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Lot's of picnic tables. Very cool playground for the kids to explore. Lots of friendly people fishing and feeding the ducks and geese. Lot's of visibility to see your kids play from all vantage points. They also have some big fields that would be great for soccer, a ball game, or frisbee.

They rent peddle boats (which we were too late to take advantage of). Those are some tired, whipped looking peddle boats. Caveat emptor.

“Great place for a reunion of friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We reserved one of the sites with a covered area and barbeque pit for a get together of old friends from college. We had about 20 folks and there were plenty of picnic tables for our food and to sit. We had site #5 and it was perfect - backed up to a wooded area, very little traffic going by and clean. Made for a perfect day to spend reacquainting with friends not seen in decades. It also had a port-o-san right at the site, which was appreciated by all!

“Kids Break and Adults too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

After visiting Lexington all day we visited the park to let the granddaughter unwind. Kept her intrigued and occupied for over an hour on the creative playground equipment.
