great place to jog, have a picnic, fish, navigate a paddle boat, or see a movie (in the summer). Great place to take the kids.

“Clean park, great view”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

My time at Jacobson Park was very nice, I was able to put my Kayak in and paddle around the pond with a great view of the Golf course on the other side and lots of people fishing on the shoreline. This is a very family freindly park if you dont have your own kayak they have rentals there and also Paddle boats to rent as well. There's allways lots of Mallard ducks wandering around too so it's a very nice park to take the kids to play on the playground or just sit around near the pond and watch someone flying thier remote control waterplanes around the pond or fishing from the shore.

Absolutely beautiful. The park is very clean and the ducks are very friendly. To top it all off, paddleboats!! Perfect way to end a date :-) I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a relaxing place to visit.

“Located on Richmond Road.”
Reviewed February 22, 2012

It is decent park and would make a nice place for someone living in Lexington to get away to a grassy area. Has a large body of water to fish from and a playground as well as a nearby golf course.
