The majestic bronze sculpture and memorial of the great Thoroughbred, Man o’ War, welcomes you to the park. At his gravesite, you can learn about his amazing career as one of the greatest racehorses to ever live, and can compare Man o’ War’s unbelievable 28-foot stride with your own. Buried nearby is the great African-American jockey, Isaac Burns Murphy (1861-1896), who still holds the record for the highest percentage of winning rides

Summary:

Only park around Lexington, but offers nothing compared to most RV parks

For the attractions and city size, you'd expect better at any affiliated national park chain. Park has only two centralized dump sites-none on site causing one to lockdown, unhook, drive to dump; setup all over. Concrete pads are small, we stepped out into mud & water when it rained. Internet charges & cut us off five days early, park has no responsibility, never could get service rep to talk with; always away from office. Park has no entertainment or social life, shuffleboard, horseshoes, volleyball, etc. If one night parking is all you want, it barely meets the bill. Many activities outside in town to see and do, good resturants on Richmond Road, try the Nighthawk Special at Columbia's on N Lime & 2nd. Enough already said about the horse park activities. Personnel have loss the old time KY friendliness for "I can't do anything to help you."
