Our beautiful Boonville City Lake Park, a 15-acre lake in center
of our city, was built by the Corp of Engineers, and originally
named Waterworks Lake, and was the source of water for the community
In 1928, The City of Boonville piped in its water from water wells
in southwest Spencer County; the name of the lake was changed to
Boonville City Lake.
The park consists of three playgrounds, one basketball court, a
spray park, two picnic shelters, two gazebos and three parking
lots. Calling (812) 897-1230 can reserve the shelters. There
is a $25 charge for renting the shelters. The spray park
was opened in 2006 and is open generally from June – August
for children 11 years old and younger. There is no charge
for admittance to the spray park.
Children must be accompanied
by a responsible adult.
A 6 tenths of a mile concrete walking path is available which
circles the lake. In 2000, lampposts with flowers were implemented

The Boonville City Lake is stocked with bass, bluegill, crappie,
and channel catfish, and is stocked by the State Fish hatchery. A
fishing license is required for anyone 16 years of age and older. NO boating
or swimming is permitted. The Boonville City Lake has become
a large attraction to the community and is enjoyed by all.
Occasionally some of our churches have music events at the park
and invite the public.
Our goal is for families to gather at our park and have an enjoyable
family day. Enjoy your time at our City Lake Park.
Brackenridge Park is located at the Corner of
Elm and Pine Streets.
Once again please visit our beautiful city parks as often as you
would like and bring the entire family.
