Gratz Park, Lexington Kentucky
Have you had the pleasure of exploring Gratz Park in Lexington, KY yet?
This wonderful green space has been protected for over a century thanks to a deal that Benjamin Gratz made with the city in 1917.
His proposal to the city ensured that the green space would never have buildings placed within it.
Benjamin Gratz’s deal made it so that everyone today can enjoy Gratz Park.
Whether you want to picnic, read a book, or have a Gratz Park engagement photo shoot, this space is perfect!
Just steps away from the busyness of downtown, Gratz Park has a sculptured fountain, abundant shade, and beautiful walking paths.
You can meander and learn about the historic homes, while enjoying one of the oldest neighborhoods in Lexington.
There are even two homes open to visitors, Hopemont and Bodley Bullock House.
