Lexington Lake Park
Lexington Lake Park, located west of De Soto north of Kansas 10 Highway, is JCPRD's newest park. Previously known as Rieke Lake, this 465-acre inverted L-shaped property features a 27-acre lake, which was previously a private fishing lake originally constructed in the 1950s.

A few of the park’s unique natural features are virgin prairie, 120 prairie species, including the federally-threatened Mead’s milkweed, oak and hickory forest, and tallgrass prairie.
