Lexington Lake Park is Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s newest park. Previously known as Rieke Lake, this 465-acre inverted L-shaped property features a 27 acre lake, which was previously a private fishing lake originally constructed in the 1950s. This 465-acre property is located west of De Soto north of Kansas 10 Highway.
One of the park’s unique natural features is a virgin prairie officials believe has never been plowed on the lake’s west side. This area, which encompasses about nine acres, has been surveyed and 120 prairie species, including the federally-threatened Mead’s milkweed, were found at the site.
