Day trips and special events

Therapeutic Recreation programs provide opportunities for persons with disabilities to enjoy activities through recreation, leisure and play. Our programs are designed to enhance the overall health and wellness of persons with special needs. TR programs allow participants to showcase their talents and abilities through a variety of recreational opportunities.

Lexington Parks and Recreation is committed to safety, as our community works to protect citizens from COVID-19. In accordance with state government and CDC guidelines, select Therapeutic Recreation events have been canceled. Contact our Therapeutic Recreation Department at (859) 288-2928 for more information.
