Recent renovations to Washington Park include a 4,000 sq. foot sprayground, playground, picnic pavilion with a multi-purpose patio, basketball court, walking trails, teen gathering area, historical marker, upper picnic shelter, parking improvements, renovations to the existing picnic shelter, and renovations to the existing bathhouse. All amenities are accessible and meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.

Lexington was awarded a $217,500 reimbursable grant from the N.C. Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) for this project.

City Manager Alan Carson introduced a conceptual master plan at the 2014 City Council retreat entitled the "Re-Creation of Recreation" in an effort to address City Council's goals. The renovation of Washington Park is Phase II of the recreation initiatives for City of Lexington residents, of which the signature element is a 4,000 square foot sprayground!
