Another park worth visiting is Boone County Veterans Memorial Park, which pays tribute to veterans and their families.
If you don't mind a short drive, Doe Run Lake Park is ideal for hot days as visitors can cool-off in the water, and relax in the sunshine on the shore. Here is also a top spot for kids as the water is shallow and the area is patrolled.
