Isaac Murphy Memorial Art Garden

577 East Third Street, Lexington, KY 40508

The Isaac Murphy Memorial Art Garden is the first park in the United States to honor the earliest African American professional athletes – the Thoroughbred jockey. Fittingly, the Garden is located on land once owned by Isaac, in the predominately African American East End of Lexington.
