  • Absolutely LOVE this place!! Beautiful and peaceful!! The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable. They will talk to you about the different types of plants, trees, birds and other things in the park. Definitely recommend, you leave feeling stress free and full of life.
  • For the "city" hiker it's an easy walk. For small children it's a great place to explore plus it's just a cool place.
  • So amazed that there exist such a place in town. You are doing yourself a disservice if you live close by and have never rambled down the trails of such a beautiful enigma in the heart of Lexington.
  • My wife and I went there and it was the most beautiful place I have seen in Lexington. Two young bucks were maybe 20 feet from us. So we just stood there quiet and watched them until they were gone.
  • Beautiful way to spend a few hours, crazy how its in the center of Lexington but feels so far away.
