Cool little park.

The statues are really cool. Fountains are nice. Great place to play pokemon go at. Unfortunately there are usually beggers and other sorts that like to give people trouble.

This was a fun place to stop and let our son stretch his legs. It also made for some really fun pictures!

Fun to get pics by the horses... picnic tables are the only thing missing at this park. It was cold but worth a stop... didn't stay long due to weather.

I read about this on TripAdvisor when planning a family roadtrip to Nashville and thought it sounded like a fun stopping/rest point. Well my 9 and 7 year old kids LOVED it. This was easy to find with adjacent inexpensive meter parking. The park was well maintained and beautiful and the statues were unique. The kids loved pretending to be... More

Small area at an intersection. The horse statues are the reason to visit here, really nice chance for a picture or just drive by and see the horse statues. Worth a visit if you're in the area .

we always take visitors to this very unusual sculpture park - you are right next to a horse that is going 30 MPH! And the plaques that line the walks are full of fascinating information about people who have been leaders in the horse industry. Some unexpected names as well as some that are famous among only a few -... More

If you like horses and the history of thoroughbreds in this area, come to this park. There are so many plaques about historical figures that you can spend quit some time reading them. Then there is the reflecting pond and the amazing life-sized sculptures of horses racing. This is a suitable recognition for the industry that has made Lexington famous.... More
