Herald-Leader Staff ReportMarch 9, 2014 

Macy’s has chosen Shillito Park to be part of its Heart Your Park program to raise money for more than 550 parks across the country.

Through March 31, customers at Lexington’s Macy’s can donate $1 or more at the register for Shillito Park. Macy’s will match customer ­donations up to $250,000 nationwide, according to a news release.

Each Macy’s store selected a local park or greenspace to support through the program, which is being conducted in partnership with the nonprofit National Recreation and Park Association. Donations will go toward maintenance and improvements to features including trails, playgrounds and ball fields at each park.
