Lexington Parks + Recreation has revealed the first phase of the new ~137-acre Cardinal Run Park North, located off Parkers Mill Road.
Plans for the park stemmed from community feedback, which was gathered through in-person neighborhood meetings and online surveys. The city will use $10.1 million in ARPA funds for designing and developing this project.
The park, designed by firm Brandstetter Carroll Inc., will be the largest community park Lexington has opened in 25 years. Together with Cardinal Run Park South, the combined parks will total 192.2 acres, making it among the top five largest parks in town.
When the 137.6-acre Cardinal Run North is completed in 2025, it will feature:
- An eight-acre dog park
- Various sports fields + courts
- Around three miles of nature trails
- And a playground
