The Lexington Skate Park was designed and built by one of the premier skate park companies in the world, Team Pain Skateparks.  After hearing from citizens about the need for a skate park, it was incorporated into the Re-Creation of Recreation Master plan in 2013. Public meetings were held to gain community input on the design and layout, and construction began in late 2018. 

The park is primarily a street course full of transitions and street textures. There are 6 different types of handrails and flat rails throughout the park, and a variety of hips and ledges. The park also boasts a 10 foot deep pro bowl. One unique feature is the brick quarterpipe, which is made entirely of bricks from the Lexington Home Brands factory fire.
