Cardinal Run Park

Location: Lexington, Kentucky
Client: Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, Parks & Recreation Department

Lose & Associates developed the master plan for the park’s 170 acres, with significant neighborhood input. The firm also coordinated with local engineers to re-design and widen the public road serving the park. The plan includes an 8-field youth baseball and softball complex, a 6-field youth soccer complex, group picnic shelters, and walking trails through the landscaped grounds. A community/recreation center with meeting rooms, gymnasiums, indoor swimming, staff office space and an outdoor youth area with a street hockey rink and volleyball courts are also included in the plan. Following the master planning effort, Lose & Associates was retained to develop the construction documents for the first phase of development, the baseball complex. The park’s built structures were designed to mirror the look and feel of the barns, stone walls and board fences of the neighboring racing stables.
