History of the Skate/BMX Park

Former City Manager Alan Carson introduced a conceptual master plan for the Skate/BMX Park at the 2014 City Council retreat titled,  "The Re-Creation of Recreation."  The vision followed a Parks and Recreation Facility Development Master Plan Study in 2013 by Site Solutions. Citizens have reiterated the need for recreational opportunities in the community for over four decades. Most recently the need was mentioned as part of the Economic Development Strategic Plan. It was also recommended in the 2020 Renaissance Plan.   

The Location of the Skate/BMX Park

The Skate/BMX Park will be located at the former site of Radcliffe Pool, which closed in 2014 before the opening of Lexington Aquatic Park.  CLH Design and Team Pain have worked with citizens for input on the initial design of the “re-creation” into Lexington’s first skate/bmx park. Public meetings were held in 2016 for community input. Final design work is underway, and construction is slated to begin in 2018. This project will be approached just like other park renovations, with the end result to create significant appeal for current residents as well as prospective residents and businesses.
