Visioning Plan Underway for Daniel Boone Park

Visioning Plan Underway for Daniel Boone Park

It’s likely that since you’re reading this, you love local foods, native plants, urban greenspace, Appalachian heritage, and vibrant culture. All these joys and more intersect at Boone’s Daniel Boone Park. Daniel Boone Park is the site of the renowned Horn in the West outdoor drama, the Daniel Boone Native Gardens, and, for the past 35 years, the Watauga County Farmers' Market. This community gathering space is where Boone has sourced local foods for more than three decades. Will it be able to accommodate a growing and even more dynamic Farmers Market in the future? The Boone Tourism Development Authority (TDA) and the Southern Appalachian Historical Association (SAHA) are now working with the award-winning landscape architects of Marquis Halback, Inc. to develop a new long-range vision plan for Daniel Boone Park.

If you have ideas for the future of the Watauga County Farmers Market or anything else going on at Daniel Boone Park, this is your chance to add your input. Please consider filling out the survey at
