Parks

Just as Creek and Cherokee tribes were once drawn to this area by the lush forests and cool waters of the mighty Chattahoochee River, today’s families, nature lovers, and health-conscious individuals alike flock to the shores and shoals that line one of America’s oldest river channels and the woods and rolling hills that dot Johns Creek’s breathtaking landscape. Awe-inspiring beauty aside, the City of Johns Creek has taken great care to make its parks and preserves a collective homage to both reflection and recreation. Why even Technology Park – a 1900-acre master-planned, mixed use business community at the heart of the city – is maximized for mixing business with pleasure thanks to a lovely lake surrounded by walking trails. Whether seeking wellness activities or just good clean fun, Johns Creek is a terrific place to walk on the wild side for an unforgettable afternoon.
