Julian Price Memorial Park is named after its former owner, insurance giant Julian Price. Price bought the 4,200 acres as a recreational retreat for his employees; after his untimely death in 1946, his heirs donated the land to the parkway as a memorial. Now, Price Park is a popular parkway destination, with plenty of opportunities to hike, fish canoe, camp, and picnic.
