Recreation and Community Programs DepartmentDiscover the Benefits 


With the winter that we have had, we understand that people are eager to use the recreational facilities this spring.  However, PLEASE do not remove snow from any athletic field, tennis or basketball court, or the Center Track.  This is to ensure that no damage occurs at any of these facilities.  Thank you for your cooperation. 

Lexington High School athletic teams began spring season practices on March 16. Due to the record breaking winter we have all experienced fields are not yet available for their use.  LHS ATHLETIC TEAMS WILL BE USING THE FIELD HOUSE UNTIL 8:00 PM FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE MONTH. 

Field house hours will be 8:00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday until further notice.

Enterprise Fund:
