"Jenna and I feel extremely blessed to call Lexington home. We have received so much love and support from virtually every segment of the community and this is an opportunity for us to give back in a meaningful way. Town Branch Park will be a place for people of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences to gather together and interact in a beautiful and dynamic space. That is a vision of a Lexington we are proud to get behind.

- Matthew Mitchell, head coach for the University of Kentucky women’s basketball program.

To honor this gift, the Park will name the hardscape plaza near the park entrance after the Mitchells. The Plaza will serve all members of the community with hundreds of free activities and classes. It will be a key location in the park for the many programs planned for people of different ages and a wide variety of interests.

This is another giant step forward in creating a world-class park in the heart of downtown, and we are fortunate that Matthew and Jenna have chosen to support our community in such a meaningful, impactful and lasting way.

With this donation, the park has now raised $10.6 million of our $31 million private fundraising goal! A special thank-you to everyone who has been part of the success to date.
