Kenton County Fiscal Court approves conversion of Fox Run golf course into park; doubles park acreage

The Kenton County Fiscal Court approved the conversion of the 225-acre Fox Run golf course into a park, nearly doubling the amount of designated parklands maintained by Kenton County.

“We’ve got a great opportunity to expand and grow the park services we currently offer,” said Kenton County Judge/Executive Kris Knochelmann. “We’re currently studying potential amenities to develop in Fox Run Park. It’s an exciting development for recreation in Kenton County.”

There will be future opportunities for public feedback. Continue to check the Kenton County website for updates.

Fox Run Park is currently open for passive recreation, including hiking, fishing, biking, wildlife observation, and walking.

Visitors are welcome on the property from dawn to dusk and are asked to be mindful of the two adjacent golf courses.
