Long Memorial Park

Not maintained by or part of the Boone County Conservation Board park properties.

An approx. 9-acre remnant of what was once the Boone County Home property is today maintained as a public space through a cooperative agreement between Boone County and the Dodge Township Trustees. 

Upon demolition of the County Home, the park was named in honor of Jack and Ilah Long, long-time caretakers of the home and its residents.  Today it offers an expansive greenspace for many varied activities.  No fires, firearms or fireworks are premitted in the park.  Organized groups must first seek written permission from the Boone County Board of Supervisors to hold events and must provide proof of liability insurance, with Boone County listed as an insured party.  


Approx. 6 miles north of Boone on Nature Road, east side.
