Daniel Boone Park
Cultural Resources Department
The Daniel Boone Park is one of Boone’s cultural gems. Situated at the top of Horn in the West Drive, the park offers visitors special events, stunning views, and a number of family-friendly activities. The 36.5-acre park was purchased in 1957 by the Town of Boone from James B. and Carrie W. Winkler to be used for recreation, education, and historical purposes. It is home to the gorgeous scenery of the Daniel Boone Native Gardens, a project of the Garden Club of North Carolina, Inc. The Boone Jaycee Park provides a playground for our younger patrons while the historic Strawberry Hill overlook grants visitors a breathtaking view of Boone. On Saturday mornings, beginning in May and ending in November, the Watauga County Farmer’s Market offers up local produce, food, and crafts and in summer the park’s Daniel Boone Amphitheater houses the Horn in the West outdoor drama.
