Lexington Lake Park
Lexington Lake Park, located west of De Soto and north of Kansas 10 Highway, is a 465-acre park featuring a 27-acre lake.
A few of the park’s unique natural features are a virgin prairie with 120 prairie plant species, including the federally-threatened Mead’s milkweed, oak and hickory forest, and tallgrass prairie.
Check out the new disc golf course at Lexington Lake Park!
The Lexington Lake Park Disc Golf Course is a par 27/54 for 9/18 holes wooded and prairie grass course. The course is very technical and wooded in places with a few open holes. It is located on Lexington Lake’s east side and has nine holes with two baskets at each hole, so players can play the course twice and have a different experience each time. A new parking lot with 15 spaces is also available near the start of the course. The new course was designed by Scott Reek, who has also designed other disc courses in the region, including the Cedar Ridge course in Bonner Springs, as well as JCPRD courses in Heritage Park, and Big Bull Creek Park.
