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 park lands 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.”
