The LFUCG Parks and Recreation cannot assume any liability for any letterbox placement. Letterboxers place boxes in Parks property at their own risk. This includes damage, destruction, and loss occurring to any LB placement.

The following is the policy for hiding boxes in Lexington and Fayette County parks.
Note: Triangle Park is not LFUCG property so permission would have to come from Lexington Center Corp.
