After approximately four and one half years of planning designing and constructing, Marshall County’s first full amenities park, Mike Miller County Park, opened to the public in September 2000. Before the park came to be, the Fiscal Court appointed a five-member park board to assess the recreation facilities within the county and the cities of Benton, Calvert City, Hardin and also the two state parks in the county. The Park Board held a series of public meetings to determine people’s desires for additional recreational opportunities and traveled to other parks with outstanding facilities in the state of Kentucky and surrounding states. Armed with the information they collected, the board began a search for property. The perfect property would be centrally located and large enough for the development of recreational facilities, but not an excessive expenditure. The Park Board recommended the purchase of an eighty-acre site in the community of Draffenville, located on US Highway 68 West, near the interchange of the Purchase Parkway. In 1997, the county purchased the property. The Park Board then commissioned Brandstetler-Carroll of Louisville, KY for a master plan of the parks development. Construction began in the winter of 1998 and approximately two and one half years later, the park was opened for public use.
