Lexington Parks & Recreation

Lexington Parks & Recreation’s mission is to build community and enrich life through parks, programs, and play. City employees and their families are encouraged to enjoy these city facilities and services.

Parks & Recreation works with the community to celebrate the history of Lexington, provide great programs and facilities, and for the future to ensure Lexington continuously becomes a better place to live, work, and play.

With over 100 parks, including over 50 trails spanning more than 60 miles, Parks & Recreation offers multiple ways to get healthier and live a more active lifestyle. Join a co-ed league, swim some laps, play a round or two of golf, learn to ride a horse or explore our natural areas. 

Partial scholarships are available to participants based on need and availability. Individuals seeking scholarships shall fill out an income eligibility application. Income eligibility forms must be submitted before online registration prices can be adjusted.
