The Daniel Boone Park Master Plan
Boone Tourism Development Authority (TDA) and the Southern Appalachian Historical Association (SAHA) are working with the award-winning landscape architects of Marquis Halback, Inc. in developing a new long-range vision plan for Daniel Boone Park.
Where Boone Tells Its Story
Since the opening of the Horn in the West outdoor drama over 60 years ago,
Daniel Boone Park has been the place where Boone tells its story. The Horn in the West celebrates Daniel Boone, an American patriot that serves as the town’s namesake. Over the decades, additional “stories” that reflect community values and priorities have been introduced. These range from the importance of native plants (at the Daniel Boone Native Gardens) to the renewed focus on local food (with the Watauga County Farmers’ Market).
The goal of this planning project is to create a bold, but attainable
conceptual vision plan that will preserve and recreate the “bones” of Daniel Boone Park. Boone has the opportunity to organize the visitor's experience both within the Daniel Boone Park and potentially to the entire High Country area. This vision will include recommendations for both physical improvements as well as additional program opportunities for Boone to tell its story to residents and visitors alike.
