Even though this is located in what is now the industrial section of town, they've done well preserving this park and the springs. The blue hole is clear and pretty, and the springs and park are clear and clean.

Park is hidden in the middle of an industrial site in Lexington. The park site has useful information and you can always call for more information and help from the staff. The park offers a number of peaceful and beautiful trails to enjoy with loved ones whether adults or kids alike. The springs themselves are a marvel and signs offer... More

Nice in city nature area. You rarely realize that you are in the middle of an industrial area when visiting this park. Good place to go for families with smaller kids. Also nice for just about anyone else. Great stress reliever or just a place to relax.

This time of the year, the wild parts of Kentucky are just starting to wake up, and in Lexington, the leaves are just starting to come out on native species of woody bushes & trees, but the early spring flowers and such are out, and make the walk through the McConnell Springs very interesting. I enjoy the woods & history,... More

McConnell Springs is on the rim of Lexington. You drive to it down a road filled with things like a transportation concrete company, the firefighter training center, and so forth. There is no preparation for what you find when you arrive at the park. In the city is a haven of nature. The visitor's center is lovely and clean, with... More

Hidden behind an industrial park, McConnell Springs serves as an oasis in the heart of downtown Lexington. This is not a place for true hiking, but can serve as a place to kill an hour or so in nature,sit by the springs, and enjoy the area. The wetlands are home to many animals and could be a great place for... More

McConnell Springs is a hidden gem among industrial facilities in the heart of Lexington. You will never come across it accidentally, but you should seek it out. This park offers mild hikes and a tour of Lexington history going back to it's founding in the 18th century. It also demonstrates the area's natural history with streams entering and exiting caves.... More
