This was one interesting thing in Lexington that was actually open when we were there on a Sunday morning. The statues were interesting to look at, and a fun photo op, however the park itself was full of homeless people, so we didn't walk through.

We had a little picnic there. Lots of plaques with Lexington's famous people that lived there and visited. So enjoyed the bronze statues and got some fun pictures.

We went to Thoroughbred Park and watched the eclipse with my son and nephew. There was a very nice lady that shared her eclipse glasses with us since the park had run out. The park is beautiful; a very, very nice park.

This was just about a 15 minute stop on our travels around Lexington. There was free street parking behind the park. The horses make great photo opportunities that really represent Lexington. It's free so you can't go wrong.

We saw the statues and had to stop for a quick walk through and a few pictures. Great little park that is well worth a little walk. Too bad there were locals bathing in the fountains (eeewww) but maybe they didn't see the signs...
