"I have two teenage kids who are fnishing up in school, and they thoroughly enjoy it." Although his daughter and son are in private schools, "mostly because it was more or less a cultural thing for them," Bratton notes that his years in public schools were very happy, and that Lexington is fortunate to have some outstanding schools. The city itself did not stand still during his absence. He has been especially gratifed at "a lot of changes downtown." Vintage buildings are undergoing renovations, especially the centrally located Victorian Square (aka The Square), and new restaurants are springing up. Among new crowd-attracting events is Thursday Night Live, when restau- rants bring tables outdoors and the area blossoms with music by local talent. A neighborhood restaurant boom started in 2012 with the renovation of an old factory. The city now boasts several new eateries, including Country Club, cited one of the best 15 new U.S. restaurants. Bratton's continuing favorite, though, is a vintage-house-turned-restaurant, the Merrick Inn. More than a hundred city parks, with six golf courses and a 12,000-square- foot skateboarding park, await those in search of healthy outdoor pursuits. Looking to practice in or near Lexington?
