“Many options to explore”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Whether you want to school your horse or do a trail ride, have a family picnic, take the kids for a playmate, run, playing soccer or take your dogs to the dog park, everyone will be happy with this public park.

“Huge Park, Nice Visit Depending On What Your Visiting For”
Reviewed 1 June 2013

I have gone to Masterson Station Park since I was in a stroller. It is a huge, wide open park in a more calmer area of Lexington. The city host's all kinds of different events throughout the year at this park. Location features numerous soccer fields, picnic/grilling areas, large playground for kids, and a decent sized dog park.

However I would avoid the park when the Bluegrass Fair is in town. (Generally late June/early July). When the Bluegrass Fair is in town this area becomes a madhouse. The road that borders the park (Leestown Road) is only one lane by the park, so you can imagine the traffic during a major event such as the fair. The Bluegrass Fair, to me anyways, just isnt worth the hassle.

Other then that I visit Masterson Station Park weekly and love it. I would recommend visiting for a picnic one afternoon!

“Park that hosts the BlueGrass Fair each year”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

There is nothing particularly wrong with Masterson Station Park, but there is nothing particularly appealing either. The yearly Lions BlueGrass Fair is held at the park. It is an enjoyable county fair, but for some intangible reason it is just not as good as it was when located many years ago at the Red Mile facility in downtown Lexington. The fair is still worth a visit, just not as much fun as it used to be.

“Soccer complex is average, no bathrooms? come on!”
Reviewed 22 May 2012

The place is huge and the fields are really nice but the bathrooms were closed (for a eurosport soccer tournament) and the porta pottys were scarce.
