Beautiful! A great place to walk & relax.
The memorial to flight 5191 is an outstanding tribute to those who died in the accident.
A great place to visit anytime.

Large area to run, walk, play, bird watch and flower watch in spring and summer. The university also developed play area for kids with original landscaping architecture.

The Arboretum--a botanical garden--has everything a nature lover would wish for, right in the middle of the city! You can take classes to learn more about gardening, tree identification, making rain barrels and gardens, learn a craft (usually for kids), or just enjoy the quiet. There no charge for this beauty break!

No matter the season, if you are visiting Lexington, take the time to drop by the Arboretum. Even if you have less than an hour to spend, it's the perfect place to experience the lovely outdoors and fresh air of Lexington. It's very easy to access, adjacent to the University of Kentucky and there is no fee. Gardens are well marked and there is something to see all year long. The Arboretum is very safe and friendly and I am surprised that this site isn't ranked in the top 10 places to visit in Lexington because of its easy access and phenomenal value. Are you visiting for business? Skip the hotel fitness center and go to the Arboretum instead. Your 5 senses will get a work out too.

Nice place to walk around and to see the lovely trees just beginning to turn to beautiful fall colours. Lovely roses and nicely planted borders.
