Lexington’s Hamburg area features so much new development but there is a great park tucked in not far from the hustle and bustle of all the shopping and dining.  Pleasant Ridge Park is just off Pleasant Ridge Drive and features a playground, dog pad (.5 acre), grassy areas, and a path that connects to the newly opened Brighton Rail Trail!
