What is a service animal?

A dog or miniature horse individually trained to help someone with a disability. Emotional support animals are not service animals.

Do I need proof that my animal is a service animal?

No. You don’t need proof that your animal is a service animal, and you don’t need to describe your disability. We may ask the following questions:

  • Is the animal a service animal required because of a disability?
  • What work or task(s) was the service animal trained to do?

Can my service animal go on rides?

We do not currently allow service animals on rides.

Guests with a state disability placard or license plate may park in the designated area in Lexington Medical Center Fair Park on a first-come, first-serve basis. Entry to Lexington Medical Center Fair Park is through Gate 6 on George Rogers Blvd. or Gate 10 on Bluff Rd.
