Cardinal Run Park is a community park which is split into two sections divided by Parkers Mill Rd, South (which is currently open) and North (which is expected to open in 2024). At 192.2 acres, the combined size of Cardinal Run Park North (137.6 acres) and Cardinal Run Park South (54.6 acres) will make it one of the city’s top 5 largest parks.
Cardinal Run Park North
The Mayor and Council have dedicated $10.1 million in federal American Rescue Plan Act funds to design and develop Cardinal Run Park North. The plan for Cardinal Run North will align with changing needs and demographics that were identified in the Lexington Parks & Recreation Master Plan, which provides guidance for parks, recreation, open space, and trails in Lexington. The design of the park will incorporate several natural features found on the property, including springs and karst topography.
During this stage of park development the design firm, consultants, and the city would like to get your feedback on what you would like to see at the park, and what your priorities are on design.
