Luxurious homes in a peaceful setting characterizes the neighborhood of Shriners in southeastern Lexington. Named for the children’s hospital located in its community, this neighborhood is bounded by Chinoe Road to the north, Lakeview Drive to the south, Richmond Road to the east, and on the west by Cooper Drive.
The heart of the neighborhood is the namesake hospital, Shriners Hospital for Children. Located on Richmond Road, this is one of the 22 such hospitals around the country where children receive care without worry of ability to pay. The Lexington hospital specializes in pediatric orthopedics, and the Shriners organization employs the largest full-time staff of orthopedic surgeons in the country. Children receive care in a family-oriented environment, which also characterizes the surrounding Lexington neighborhood.
In addition to the hospital, the neighborhood is also within easy reach of the University of Kentucky and downtown Lexington. In addition to all the entertainment available downtown, Shriners residents can enjoy dance and music performances at the nearby Otis A. Singletary Center for the Arts and exhibitions at the University of Kentucky Art Museum. Also, the Arboretum is a popular spot for those in the community who love plants.
The Shriners neighborhood of Lexington is just minutes away from one of the city’s most unique features, the Kentucky Horse Park. Seeking to preserve the tradition of the Bluegrass State and its historic relationship to the horse, the park includes a museum dedicated to horse lore, a working horse farm, horse shows, horseback riding, educational activities for children, camping, and much more. The Kentucky Horse Park is home to the annual World Equestrian Games.
