In 2013, lexington added a new splash pad. The splash pad is open during the summer months and can be rented for parties. Contact city hall for more details. 405-527-6123

Thanks to donations from several people, seven new pieces of playground equipment have been added for the children to enjoy. A new volleyball court, walking trails and new restrooms will be added to the park as well.
