Lexington Lake Park
Lexington Lake Park, located west of De Soto and north of Kansas 10 Highway, is a 465-acre park featuring a 27-acre lake.
A few of the park’s unique natural features are a virgin prairie with 120 prairie plant species, including the federally-threatened Mead’s milkweed, oak and hickory forest, and tallgrass prairie.
Disc golf course coming soon!
Work began in mid-October on construction of a new disc golf course at Lexington Lake Park. JCPRD recently hired local course designer Scott Reek, who previously designed and helped construct disc golf courses at Heritage and Big Bull Creek parks. The new course will be located on LLP’s east side in an under-utilized area, and will have nine holes with two baskets at each hole, so players could play the course twice and have a different experience each time. A new parking area for 12 to 15 cars will also be part of this project. Tentative plans call for completing this course no later than Memorial Day 2023.
Lexington Lake Park has one large shelter. Shelters are perfect for parties, family reunions, corporate events, and weddings! To ensure the use of a shelter, reservations are recommended.
