2nd Sunday Lexington

Your Subtitle text

Celebrate the success of 2nd Sunday and the Legacy Trail that is the crown jewel of our trail system. Since 2008, citizens were invited to walk, run, bike, and blade on borrowed, existing infrastructure such as streets and airport runways.  In 2012 Lexington is experiencing permanent infrastructure becoming assets the community now owns.

2nd Sunday’s goal is to increase and improve access to safe places to be physically active in Kentucky.  Beginning in 2008, Family and Consumer Sciences Agents with the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service have coordinated community wide 2nd Sunday events.  2nd Sunday serves as a platform for exploring local health/physical activity opportunities.
