Visit at Preston's Springs Park
Preston's Springs Park, 1939 Dunkirk Dr, Lexington, KY, 40504 Map
Public Welcome Family Friendly Free Event Chapter Meeting
This 16 acre city park is tucked away between a residential street and a railroad track. It is entirely wooded and stretches along a tributary of Wolf Run. This creek starts out in a lovely pool fed by an underground water source and then meanders through the valley. There is no park infrastructure and for decades, Preston's Springs Park received very little management. In recent years, volunteers under the guidance ot the Friends of Wolf Run have cleared almost all the honeysuckle from the valley and slopes. The abundant wintercreeper remains a tough challenge. Members of the volunteer group will be our guides through this hidden gem of a park.
Be sure to look for the Historic marker located between a church and a private house on Dunkirk Drive. Park in the street and walk down the slope behind the marker toward the park entrance
