Plans are in place for Town Branch Park to become the Central Park of Lexington. The 10-acre park will provide green space to downtown Lexington between Main and High, adjacent to Rupp Arena, where many of you park for UK basketball games and concerts. That parking lot is going away this summer and the area will one day be a beautiful and vibrant park spanning all the way out to the Oliver Lewis Bridge.
The project is currently in its fundraising phase, but a video was recently released to show what it will look like once it is completed. To me it looks like a great place to walk a dog, fly a kite, toss a football, or trip over a homeless person.
See it for yourself and then get excited for a Central Park in downtown Lexington (if it ever actually happens):
