Lexington Lake Park, previously referred to as the Rieke Lake property, opened in July 2017. The property consists of 465-acres located west of De Soto and north of K-10 Highway. The site includes a 30-acre fishing lake, as well as a mix of woodlands, forest, and open areas.
A master plan for the park was completed by a consulting team headed by Bowman Bowman Novick, Inc., of Kansas City, Missouri. It was approved by the Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners in 2008.
The first phase of the park's development is now complete. Visit the Lexington Lake Park's project page for completion details, property notes, and future implementations.
