Julian Price Park is 3900 acres of magnificence and enjoyment. The park provides picnic
grounds, campgrounds, rest rooms, nature walks, an amphitheater, hiking
trails, trout fishing and boat rental. Julian Price obtained the beautiful
forested area in the late 1930s and early 1940s. He planned to use the
land as an exceptional vacation refuge for the employees of Jefferson
Standard Life Insurance Company. However, Julian Price's unfortunate death
in 1946 postponed the plans. Jefferson Standard donated the land to the
National Park Service for public use. Jefferson Standard did request that
Boone Fork be dammed to create Price Lake as a memorial for Julian Price.
The trails in the park vary in length but all take you through the forests,
by the streams and into the meadows of this fertile land.
