The One Kentucky Park That Truly Shows Off In The Winter
As the temperatures drop and the snow and ice fall, it’s tempting to stay inside rather than venture out in the cold Kentucky winter. But we live in a beautiful state that’s just as lovely when it’s cold, and there are many places throughout the Bluegrass that are great for getting some fresh air all year long. Located in Lexington, Jacobson Park is a popular spot in the warmer months for paddle boating, fishing, and playing in the sun, but this one Kentucky park truly shows off in the winter and is perfect for curing a little cabin fever.
