It’s a Great Time to Visit the Arboretum in Lexington Ky
It’s the perfect time of year to get outside and enjoy walking in one of our beautiful parks. The Arboretum in Lexington Ky is the ideal venue for taking a stroll.
This 100-acre park on the University of Kentucky campus has paved walking paths as well as wooded trails, which add up to about two miles. No dogs or bicyclists are permitted on these paths. A new biking path recently opened that connects adjacent neighborhoods with the Arboretum and allows commuters to reach campus and other parts of town.
Also known as the State Botanical Garden of Kentucky, the grounds feature children’s, rose, fragrance, and memorial gardens as well as a visitor center. The park is open to the public from dawn to dusk.
Neighborhoods within walking distance of the park are considered very desirable. Residents are close to the University of Kentucky campus, which is our number one employer. They are also not far from downtown and Transylvania University. Nearby Nicholasville Road is a major north-south corridor providing access to shopping centers and restaurants, as well as to New Circle Road, which by encircling the core of Lexington provides convenient access to the rest of the area.
